Universidade Católica Portuguesa - Porto | Auditório Carvalho Guerra

Universidade Católica Portuguesa in Porto and Planetiers are pleased to invite you to the 3rd Conference of the INSURE HUB. The event will take place on November 16th and 17th. Innovation, Sustainability and Regeneration are the key topics of the conference that will take place at the UCP Porto campus.

The aim of the conference is to bring together students, researchers, and industry professionals discussing topics related to innovation, sustainability and regeneration. We intend to prepare a program that aims to be at the forefront in the international landscape, having the contribution of professionals and leaders that have been directly involved in disruptive, circular, sustainable and/or regenerative innovation processes applied in practice.

The programme presents the most national and international recent developments on these topics and has two distinct parts: (i) the Academic Branch (November 16th), dedicated to academic presentations; and (ii) the Industry Branch (November 17th), with the presentation of 6 case studies and the intervention of Manuela Veloso, Head of J.P. Morgan AI Research & Herbert A. Simon University Professor Emeritus in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.
