The Agency participates in the delivery of the Infoparticipa Stamps to the 7 municipalities and 2 councils more transparent

Valencia, May 5, 2023.- The Cardenal Herrera-CEU University has delivered  the Infoparticipa 2022 Seals to the quality and transparency of local public communication in the Valencian Community. The municipalities of Onda, Vall d’Uxó, Gandia, València, Elx, Santa Pola, Dénia and the Provincial Councils of Valencia and Alacant have complied in 2022 with the indicators required for the granting of these recognitions. 

The award ceremony was attended by the Rector of the Cardenal Herrera CEU University, Vicente Navarro; the regional secretary of Participation and Transparency of the Generalitat Valenciana, Antoni Llorente; and the deputy director and legal affairs of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, Teresa Clemente.

The Infoparticipa Seals are awarded in the Valencian Community by  the Observatory of Governance, Transparency and CSR of the CEU UCH, together with the ComSET Research Group (Sound, Strategic and Transparency Communication) of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), following the methodology of the Infoparticipa Map, where the results of the analysis of 52 indicators are integrated into the websites of the municipalities and councils of the Valencian Community. This is the fifth edition of the study, carried out by researchers at the CEU UCH Observatory.

The act of delivery of the Infoparticipa Stamps corresponding to 2022, held this morning at CEU UCH, has been attended by the mayor of Dénia, Vicente Grimalt; the mayor of Santa Pola, Loreto Serrano; the head of Transparency of the Diputació de València, Magdalena Ramírez; the deputy of the area of Transparency in the Diputación de Alacant, Juan de Dios Navarro; the coordinator of Transparency of the City of Elx, José Antonio Galiano, together with councilors and technical staff of all the awarded consistories.
