  • punt X punt

    The punt X punt conferences, held in 2010 and 2011, allowed us to share the tools and practices offered us by the Internet in order to be more competitive. Through three sessions devoted to three different sectors, the participants were brought closer the new forms of business made possible by the Internet, strengthening sales by opening up new channels and specialisations and promoting groups of loyal customers, etc.

    These are the three puntXpunt conferences held:

  • Celebration of 50,000 .cat domains

    In May 2011, five years after we began, we registered .cat number 50,000 and we wanted to celebrate this with the Catalan-speaking community, without which .cat would not have got where it is today.

    If you want to find out how we celebrated it, go to http://50mil.cat.

  • PADICAT

    The Digital Heritage of Catalonia project, known as PADICAT and led by the Biblioteca de Catalunya (Library of Catalonia) is a repository intended to collect and preserve all cultural, scientific and general production in Catalan in digital format to make it easier to consult, in a similar way to Internet-Archive. Thanks to cooperation of the Fundació puntCAT, more than 40,000 websites under the .cat domain have been filed in the Internet-Archive.

    The PADICAT project has enjoyed the cooperation of the former Centre de Supercomputació de Catalunya - Supercomputing Centre of Catalonia (CESCA) and the support of the Department of Universities, Research and the Information Society of the Government of Catalonia (DURSI)
