The agreement will allow UCAM students to carry out internships as part of their degree at Telefónica, within the areas of Research and Development. There will also be opportunities for scholarships for start-ups, business creation and development of innovative ideas.
The agreement was signed by tUCAM's President and the CEO of Telefonica in Catalonia, Valencia, Balearic Islands and Murcia, Kim Faura, who emphasized the role of technology in today's society, and the important relationship between universities and businesses. He also explored the fact that Telefónica and its R & D department are working on data mining and 'Big Data', an area in which the UCAM is also focusing on.
