Smart & Greener Rural Business

The Business Challenges arise from the perspective of creating proximity and collaboration between ESTG and companies and are promoted by the Entrepreneur Support Office (GAE) of ESTG. The challenges consist of real problems, identified by the companies, and proposed to ESTG, in order to be discussed by candidate working groups and eventually developing ideas/proposals for hypothetical future solutions, to be carried out by the involved parties/companies.

This “Smart & Greener Rural Business” Challenge will be held in collaboration with SGC21 Consulting Services Ltd. and will be dedicated to proposing solutions that encourage the digitalization of local businesses while contributing to more sustainable practices, focusing on the adoption of measures that reduce the environmental impact


The Business Challenge will take place between April 20th and 24th:

  • 20th April from 5:30 pm to 11:00 pm
  • 21st April from 5:30 pm to 11:00 pm
  • 22nd April from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
  • 24th April from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm


Groups of 3 to 5 people can participate. Each group must be composed of at least 2 students and 1 ESTG teacher/researcher/scholar. The remaining members can be other members of the polytechnic university of Porto, including ERASMUS students.


Participation is free, but subject to registration until the 14th April.
