The goal of Summer @ IPN is to promote the relationship between the entrepreneurship ecosystem and companies linked to the Pedro Nunes Institute (IPN).
The program accepts applications from students from Universities and Polytechnic Institutes to intern at companies installed in the Incubator, Accelerator or under a virtual incubation contract, as well as all companies previously covered by the IPN incubation program.
The application period will be followed by a presentation event, on June 12, where the host companies will be able to interview one or several candidates, in order to select the desired one.
Created in 1991, on the initiative of the University of Coimbra, the Pedro Nunes Institute is a private non-profit institution that aims to promote innovation and technology transfer, establishing a link between the scientific and technological environment and the productive fabric.
IPN has already passed some of the most important technology companies in Portugal, such as Critical Software, WIT Software, Crioestaminal, Active Space Technologies, Take the Wind or Feedzai.
Since the end of 2014, IPN has coordinated ESA BIC Portugal, one of the incubators of the European Space Agency at European level, which supports startups that transfer space technology to terrestrial sectors, but also new companies wishing to enter the commercial space market .
