Application of Projects in Process


Starting with a challenge given by a Company to a multidisciplinary team of five students, P.PORTO@CaseCompetition seeks to achieve concrete and innovative solutions. The challenge covers different themes, in scientific and technological, organizational, social or environmental areas.

The main objective is to look at the problem from an innovative and strategic perspective and present solutions. At the same time, there are also teacher consultancy moments, meet-ups with companies and the competing teams, and workshops on soft skills promoted by GIAP. The winning team receives an opportunity to carry out an extracurricular internship to develop the product/idea.
