Context

Since the beginning of the crisis caused by the Covid-19, the Altran Foundation and its volunteers have promoted and developed an Integral Plan aimed at helping the most vulnerable groups in this crisis. A competition of ideas was launched to develop high impact projects that, together with the initiatives that have emerged in parallel, give rise to a plan that is constantly evolving and open to new initiatives.

The cooperation is being carried out by a team of more than 300 Altran-employed volunteers throughout Spain; in turn, there is collaboration with the Altran Group and numerous entities, among which are

Public Administrations: Autonomous Communities of Madrid, Andalusia, Castile and Leon and Catalonia.
Clients/partners: SEAT, Navantia, UPM, HP, UCA, COTEC, CATEC Foundation, etc.
Third Sector: Spanish Red Cross, Spanish Association of Foundations, Fundación Telefónica, Fundación Orange, Fundación Vodafone, Fundación Lealtad, Makers Covid-19 Community, ComGo, etc.
