Smart Engineering in the Innovation Forum of La Vanguardia

Albert de la Fuente, founding partner of Smart Engineering and Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, participates in the program “Encuentros en La Vanguardia”. As a result of this forum, La Vanguardia has published an article on December 3rd 2017.

The topics discussed include the advances in initiatives to support entrepreneurship. In fact, Barcelona and Madrid are in the top 5 in the ecosystem ranking for start-ups in the European Union. Nevertheless, the shortcomings and next steps to be taken are also analysed. An example of success is the United Stats, where 50% of the new employment is generated by newly created business. Albert de la Fuente emphasises that one of the next steps is to improve the university-enterprise relation by providing easier procedures to formalise the collaboration. Although the university already provides mechanisms and administrative support, the companies often “find the bureaucratic inertia” discouraging.

The third edition of Dobooku awards has been presented, and this year our company, Smart Enginrig has begun to collaborate with this prestigious event which is aimed at students of the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering. Will  be awarded the best Degree Final Project and Master Thesis, which distinguish for their contribution to design and society.

Smart Engineering is highly commited with our university system and want to promote the excellence between the future engineers, rewarding those jobs that have in their DNA the same characteristics as our own company; like quality, sustainability and the human dimension of engineering.

From here we incite all young engineers to participate in this interesting challenge to raise today, the future engineering challenges.
