The Técnico Partner Network stemmed from the recognition of the advantages that the reinforcement of these links brings for both sides. The main objective of the Técnico Partner Network is to establish and develop strategic alliances with companies that are best positioned to, together with Técnico, increase the added value given to society.
Participation in the Técnico Partner Network will enable all involved partners to identify and develop the best talent, accelerate internal innovation by developing, in cooperation with Técnico, new technologies, products and services that would otherwise be hard to create, contribute effectively to social responsibility initiatives, and participate in the development and strategic direction of IST.
Técnico will benefit through receiving first-hand knowledge about important technical and practical challenges identified by the business sector, which, in this highly connected and multidisciplinary world, represent excellent opportunities to make significant scientific contributions, and also by establish better working conditions on our campuses, and to provide even better opportunities for our graduates, our most important asset.
This mutually beneficial relationship between Técnico and the world’s leading companies is structured into five major groups of initiatives:
- Meet the talent
- More and better talent
- Innovation accelerator
- Social responsibility
- Involvement in IST’s strategic management
