Lisbon celebrates the International Day at the IST

Last 23 September the Instituto Superior Técnico of Portugal held the iDay – International Day-. The event has the following objectives:

  • To inform the students about the different international education programmes.
  • To foster a direct contact with the most relevant partners of IST.
  • To discuss ideas among the international community of IST.

For the first time since its creation, there was a strong presence of Latin American Universities, ranging from countries like Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama and Brasil, without taking into account the the European partner universities. The solemn opening was led by the IST “Tuna” (traditional university students ensemble).


KIC InnoEnergy attended the event in order to showcase its master and PhD programmes to potential candidates. Lots of undergraduates came by to KIC InnoEnergy’s stand to talk with KIC IE´s students representative and KIC IE´s Portuguese students, who explained them the company´s projects, goals and corporate values.
