To kick-off the 13th edition of the idea contest, Fraunhofer Portugal is leading a roundtable* next Tuesday, 28th of June of 2022 (09:45 – 12:30), at Sala de Atos Académicos (University of Aveiro). The roundtable on "The role of technology for sustainability" brings to debate one of the most relevant topics, with experts in different areas.

In the 13th edition of the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge, the idea contest promoted by Fraunhofer Portugal, we are going closer to students, researchers, and universities. This is how the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge ON THE ROAD was born, taking place every year at a different university.

For being the Portuguese University with most awarded students/researchers in the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge, the University of Aveiro will be the first host of the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge ON THE ROAD.
