Singularity University (SU) announced on December 14 a new partnership with Cascais City Hall, Nova SBE and Beta-i to launch two initiatives in Portugal to SingularityU Portugal Global Impact Challenge and SingularityU Portugal Summit Cascais. The SU is a global community that uses exponential technologies to respond to the biggest global challenges, betting on building a better future for all.
SingularityU Portugal Global Impact Challenge
The aim of the first program is to promote disruptive innovations to tackle and solve the world's biggest problems in the fields of energy, environment, food, shelter, space, water, natural disasters, organization, health, education, prosperity and security. These 'disruptive innovations' are, in the US definition, all those that impact one billion people within 10 years.
The SingularityU Portugal Global Impact Challenge has already opened applications, which run until February 6, inviting entrepreneurs and other stakeholders to come up with ideas that can help solve some of today's major global challenges, with priority being given to proposals that focus on 3 topics: Organization, Education and Environment.
SingularityU Portugal Summit Cascais in October 2018
The second project will be SingularityU Portugal Summit Cascais (October 8-9, 2018), a great conference that will bring together references from the business world, entrepreneurs, and innovators of the future, to create new innovation logics, both locally and globally .
The SingularityU Portugal Summit Cascais will provide programming and educational and business content around multiple areas linked to technology, with the best experts selected from around the world.
