Smart Everything

3 March 2022

‘Smart Everything’ is a RUN-EU Short Advanced Programme (SAP) jointly coordinated by the Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK) and the Polytechnic of Cávado and Ave (IPCA).

Co-creation has proven to be one of the most successful ways to generate value, enrich consumers’ experiences, and ultimately create products that seamlessly solve real problems sustainably and ethically. During this SAP, the makers (IT students) and the marketers (business students) will enhance their understanding of multiple viewpoints and expertise to create a more collaborative process.

Students will explore how new technological developments, interconnectedness, and product development with visual programming are applied.

This SAP aims to understand the business and development power of a cross-functional perspective, finding tools, attitudes, and work strategies that they can take with them into their academic and professional lives.

The programme includes one mobility week (in Portugal) and online periods for teamwork activities.
