The Rafael del Pino Foundation and Singularity University, founded by NASA and Google, have been collaborating since 2011 to disseminate the opportunities offered by technological disruption to address the great challenges facing humanity. Since 2012, the Foundation has contributed to selecting the Spanish candidates who participate in the Global Impact Challenge, held at NASA headquarters in California, through the Call to innovation competition, a task in which it had the collaboration of Cosentino until 2014 and which, since 2017, Metropoli 30 has also supported. The Global Impact Challenge is one of the most selective training programmes in the world in which 80 technological leaders and entrepreneurs from 47 countries analyse the technological advances that are transforming society and explore how to use them to develop real projects of great social impact.
On 10 March 2017, the first SU Bootcamp held in Spain was held at the Rafael del Pino Foundation under the subtitle "Impact a Billion people. Be exponential" with the aim of replicating the methodology of the Global Impact Challenge in Spain and articulating Singularity University alumni in our country. The 2017 Bootcamp focused on four key areas: Health, Education, Governance and Climate, initiating work that will be consolidated in the future to enhance the creativity, talent and knowledge of Spanish citizens to provide real solutions through the latest technological advances.
