    Scholarships, degree awards, hackathons

    Scholarships are a type of financial support to valorise the study paths of particularly deserving students.
    The degree awards are an acknowledgment to recent graduates who have made a scientific contribution to knowledge on certain topics or have addressed particular issues.
    A further opportunity is the organisation and funding of hackathons, in which a company can propose a topic or project of its own interest, which represents a 'problem' or a demand for innovation. Working groups, consisting of students and/or recent graduates, work out potential solutions to the problem. The best project is selected by a panel of experts, academics and companies.

    • Opportunity to find innovative solutions to problems and needs of their own interest
    • Opportunity to reward students and/or graduates in scientific fields of interest to the company
