Last Monday 1st of February KIC InnoEnergy Iberia held the MSc RENE Thesis Award and the Graduation Ceremony at the School of Engineering (ETSEIB) in Barcelona, bringing a new group of game changers ready to disrupt the energy market.
The event was open by Antoni Martinez, CTO Renewable Energy KIC InnoEnergy Iberia. After this, Diego Pavía, KIC InnoEnergy CEO, talked about the significance and the transcendence of the agreement accorded at the COP21. For Pavía, it is fundamental that all these students take their place in the energy market: “KIC InnoEnergy has invested a lot of time and effort to develop the MSc RENE. Now is your turn to return this moral contract. You are young, go for it and change the game”.
As graduates of this programme, they have developed many skills to apply in the energy industry: New languages, project management, team working, business structure and the capacity to work in cross-disciplinary teams, among many others. They are now in a great position to build a better future for the sustainable energy sector, thanks to the strong leadership and entreprenurial abilities they have developed throughout their KIC InnoEnergy journey.
