First action for the INCORE project

INCORE boosts innovation and entrepreneurial capacity in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) from Europe’s Outermost Regions (ORs) by seizing region-specific contextual and business opportunities. To achieve its objectives, there are a number of KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to be accomplished, including training and mentoring activities, as well as support to start-ups from these regions.

In this context, on 15th October 2021 the INCORE project had already conducted its first initiative, coordinated by Universidad Europea Canarias: a round table on entrepreneurship and innovation titled: “Entrepreneurship and Digital Transformation in Big Data. This is how 21st century companies evolve” (translated from Spanish). The program of the event counted with relevant topics, such as:

  • What is Big Data and Digital Transformation?
  • In what scenarios it is implemented and for what?
  • Importance of Human capital in the development of Digital Transformation.
  • Practical examples in the development and implementation of Big Data and Digital transformation.

The event was coordinated by the INCORE partner Juan Arquillo (Universidad Europea Canarias). There were 6 speakers and an audience of 34 participants, between in person and streaming modes (14 face-to-face students, 15 online, 2 teachers and 3 non-academic staff).

This is the first of many events that will be organized during INCORE’s lifetime. Initiatives in La Réunion (France), Madeira and Azores (Portugal) will also be organized in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned!
