Nokia and NOVA IMS establish Technical and Scientific Cooperation Partnership

Nokia, one of the largest multinationals in telecommunications networks and technologies and the NOVA Information Management School (NOVA IMS), of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, announce a protocol aimed at promoting technical-scientific cooperation between these two organisations, with a view to promoting links between academia and the labor market.

In the opinion of Sérgio Catalão, Director General of Nokia Portugal, “the signing of this agreement is an important step in the consolidation of the Nokia Global Services Center in Portugal, announced earlier this year, and which is now expanding its competences in advanced areas of information systems and data science. Together with NOVA IMS, we will promote the sharing of knowledge and reward the best talent, establishing a new link between academia and companies, which is fundamental for all of us."

“The exchange between the university environment and organizations is a fundamental instrument to promote a better harmony between the supply and demand for employment. We believe that this partnership will be an asset for the integration of young people into the labor market, as this type of protocol opens up new possibilities for both institutions, with NOVA IMS assuming a prominent role in the research and development strategy of the Nokia, with some logic that motivates students and involves them from now on with the business fabric. The idea here will be to allow our students to solve real-life problems, while the school itself also integrates business logic into its curriculum, which only helps us fulfill our mission of preparing our students in the best way for the market. of work”, says Miguel de Castro Neto, deputy director of NOVA IMS.

The idea is to launch challenges for students, adapted to the various levels of education (Licentiate, Postgraduate and Masters), specifically designed for end-of-year projects, course completion or master's thesis, then intervening in the analysis and classification of the student work. Prizes will be awarded for the best students and a rationale for recruiting and paid internships will be created, as well as a training program geared towards the areas of Business Process Management, Process Mining, Social Network Analysis and Graph Analysis.
