Sustainable development - Valorisation of industry residues in the construction of buildings and infrastructure

Worldwide there is a call for action to promote sustainable development by addressing 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as defined by the United Nations.

Access and attendance control on events

The City of Aveiro organizes a variety of events with different characteristics. Outside and inside events, sports, culture, fairs and markets activities, ask for different answers. The variability of different kinds of factors leads to an uncertainty context that affects the control and management of events. There are isolated systems that collects information, which require a large effort on material and human resources, usually detached from other data sources.

Efficient Human Resources Management in the ICT area

Currently, since there is a large gap between the supply and demand for human resources in the ICT area, there is a need to innovate in the way in which the talent already existing in the ecosystem of ICT companies is managed. We intend to think about a digital platform that will allow us to put companies to communicate, in synergy so that they can access a pool of available human resources teams, allocating projects for a fixed period of time.
