The aim of the initiative is to award projects from finalist students and startups in the incubation phase, who present innovative projects in technological areas relevant to Altice International’s core business (such as AI/ML, Extended Reality, IoT, Smart Cities, Smart Living, Big Data, eHealth, Digital Content, Future Networks, Over the Top services, security, blockchain, etc).
It also awards projects that promote digital inclusion and accessibility to communication, particularly in school, professional and social contexts, providing a set of services, solutions, or technological initiatives for people with disabilities. This category is powered by Fundação Altice Portugala partner of AIIA, and will be called “INCLUI”.
Finally, as part of the partnership between Altice Labs and the National Innovation Agency (ANI), AIIA is also promoting the Born From Knowledge (BfK) Awards, which aims to distinguish Portuguese “knowledge-born” projects, as well as Portuguese startups that stand out the most in R&D activities.
