ATTEND NETWORKING EVENTS
In the academic community, there are many opportunities to strengthen the personal ties with staff, students and alumni. Partner companies become family members and are invited to the main networking events, where they can feel part of this vibrant community.
PARTICIPATE IN STRATEGIC ADVISORY BOARDS
FEUP and partner companies invest in a shared vision and purpose that builds trust, and cultivate an open mindset and a desire to learn together. Strategic advisory boards, both in the faculty and in companies, are the perfect forum to deepen relationships and align perspectives.
PATRONAGE AND CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY ACTIVITIES
Companies may promote research by giving tax-deductible donations and contributions, to support the purchase of scientific equipment, the maintenance of research facilities, the demonstration of research results or scientific dissemination activities. Social responsibility also plays an increasingly important role within organizations which aim to contribute towards a fairer society. Companies can challenge or join FEUP activities in inclusive education, sustainable engineering and public policies.
