Connecting Academia and Industry: Welcoming 2024 Master's Students



At Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS, we are committed to fostering a vital ecosystem where academic knowledge and industrial practice converge to create groundbreaking innovations. We continue our tradition of welcoming a dynamic group of master's students each year, who choose to embark on a journey of discovery, development, and real-world application by developing their master theses within our research centre.

To ensure a smooth transition into their research projects, we hosted our annual Welcome Workshop last week, an initiative designed to set our new students up for success. The workshop serves as an essential introduction to the rules, procedures, and culture at Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS, providing our students with the tools and knowledge they need to thrive.

During this enlightening session, we covered a range of topics, from administrative processes to research methodologies, emphasizing the importance of collaboration, innovation, and excellence. Our aim is not only to inform but also to inspire our students, encouraging them to explore, question, and contribute to our ongoing projects with enthusiasm and curiosity.


A Tradition of Excellence and Innovation

Our master's students are at the heart of our mission to bridge the gap between academia and industry. By immersing themselves in our cutting-edge research projects, they not only contribute with fresh perspectives and energy but also take away invaluable experience that shapes their future careers. This relationship enriches our research environment and ensures that we remain at the forefront of technological advancements.


Looking Ahead

As we move forward, we are excited to see the unique contributions each student will bring to our research centre. Their work plays a crucial role in bridging the theoretical and practical aspects of their academic pursuits.

We are confident that this year's group of master's students will continue the tradition of excellence that defines Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS. Together, we will explore new horizons, push boundaries, and contribute to meaningful advancements that resonate both within academia and across industries.

Welcome to all our master's students. Here's to a year of challenge, growth, and remarkable (technological) achievements!
