04/11/2020 Learning to be / University of Aveiro
Altice Labs participated again, on the 27th and 28th of October, in the "Learning to be" programme, in the context of the Entrepreneurship course, taught by the Department of Engineering and Industrial Management and Tourism of the University of Aveiro, to several students from different courses and academic levels.
This programme, which aims to bring students closer to the national business sector, consists on the launching of challenges by the invited companies that will be explored by the students during the academic semester and duly guided by the companies in question. This year, due to the constraints associated with the pandemic, the number of entities involved was reduced to Altice Labs, Incubator of the University of Aveiro and IAPMEI.
During the two presentation sessions of the challenges, the approximately 80 students present in the online sessions got to know not only the support possibilities promoted by IAPMEI and some examples of startups supported by the Incubator of the University of Aveiro, but also the challenges created by Altice Labs, both guided by the sustainable development goals promoted by the United Nations, and which are serving as a guide to this year's edition of the "Learning to be" programme.
Presented by Ana Patrícia Monteiro and designed by Fausto de Carvalho and Fernando Morgado, from the Technology and Innovation Strategy department, both challenges revolve around the Internet of Things (IoT): one more specifically for Agrotech and another for environmental monitoring.
With this collaboration it is expected to obtain, on the one hand, suggestions and ideas for solutions that will be, subsequently and according to their maturity, integrated into the research line that Altice Labs has been developing in the context of IoT and, on the other hand, reinforce our presence in academia.
