This awards event aims to stimulate creativity and entrepreneurial initiative among students and professors at Secondary Education, Baccalaureate and Vocational Training centres, as well as among university students in the city of Albacete, by asking them to develop and defend an idea for a business project.
Prizes will be awarded for the development of a business project idea by Secondary Education, Baccalaureate, and/or Vocational Training students and professors in an effort to foster creativity and entrepreneurial motivation in the classroom.
Award for the best project
Eiffage Energía Sistemas sponsors the award for the best project by students in Secondary Education, Baccalaureate, and Intermediate Level Vocational Training. Each student who participated in the winning project will receive a smartwatch as a prize.
The presentation, which was made by the Councillor for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Laura Avellaneda, was attended by our Director of Communication and Marketing, Mª Ángeles Castellanos, who encouraged students to participate.
Castellanos thanked the Albacete City Council for giving Eiffage Energía Sistemas the opportunity to partner with this initiative, highlighting the company’s dedication to training and talent-attraction programmes.
In this regard, the Director of Communication and Marketing at Eiffage Energía Sistemas, reminded attendees that we have several agreements with UCLM and the CLM Department of Education, Culture and Sports to promote training activities for recent graduates and students.
Examples of close cooperation with educational institutions in our region include:
- Participation in the development of dual training as part of UCLM’s Master’s Degree in Renewable Energy;
- Our involvement in the Dual VT project, DUALTEC, organised by the government of Castilla-La Mancha through the Department of Education, which is now in its third edition.
In addition, our internship programme attracts the best students from all academic disciplines with the twin aim of training future professionals and attracting skills that enrich our company.
