Addressed to USAL students, professors and researchers.

Part of the activities carried out by the General Foundation of the University of Salamanca include the organization of workshops on different campuses of the University of Salamanca aimed at students, professors and researchers of the University of Salamanca. Their aim is to have the University community become aware of what companies are really like, the context in which they are developing and their prospects for the future, all aimed at  promoting closer ties between the business world and the university.

The companies are selected based on their relationship with the University (potential or in the past), both in matters related to training (continuing education courses, company internships, etc.), as well as research projects or technological innovation.
Each seminar is held in a center or faculty of the University of Salamanca, and the participating companies will be selected according to their specialties, to favor synergies between them.
