The twelve finalist works are part of an exhibition at the RAW Space, from May 17 to July 14. Last May 17, it was announced that the winner of the 174 proposals received was a TecnoCampus student, Marc Bonet, who presented a photograph and a report which are part of the photographic series of his graduation thesis.
The thesis consists of a photographic series called "Beyond cruelty" inspired by the aesthetics of the Pre-Raphaelite artistic movement and its relationship with literature. The photographs are based on stories written by Bonet that are illustrated with pictorial photographs.
"I value the realization of the event in a very positive way. We have achieved our two goals: to turn Mataró into a meeting point for entrepreneurs and investors from all over the world and for the attendees to have been inspired and motivated to continue working with their new learning and connections", explains the director of Startup Grind Mataró, Jordi Bolet Castellà.
During the two days, the convention was attended by entrepreneurs, investors and technology experts from all over the world. Among the most prominent participants are Àlex Corretgé, head of innovation at Vueling; Victòria Gago, co-founder of the European Blockchain Convention; Isabelle Gallo, partner of the Breega investment fund; Rytis Lauiris, founder of Omnisend or Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit, co-founder of MarsBased.
The activity in Catalonia was sustained by three large rounds: in the medical technology company Impress (122 million) and in the biotechnology companies Minoryx Therapeutics and SpliceBio, with more than 50 million each. Without these operations, the investment received would have been reduced by 6%. Last year, 35 rounds were closed, one less than in 2021 and seven less than in 2020, but the investments in each round are larger.
Minoryx Therapeutics is based at the TecnoCampus and focuses its activity on the development of drugs for minority diseases.
The program will give support for older people so that they can mentor people at risk of unwanted loneliness through the peer learning methodology. The "Junts" peer help program for seniors is a program driven by the Chair of Aging and Quality of Life at the TecnoCampus, attached to the Pompeu Fabra University, which will have the collaboration of the Federation of Older People's Associations of Catalonia (FATEC) and the support of the town councils of Argentona, Mataró, Calella and Pineda de Mar.
The aim is to create a network of peers among older people, by carrying out training workshops for volunteers over the age of 65 from the Maresme region so that they have the knowledge to help early detect elderly people at risk of unwanted loneliness. The workshops that these volunteers will receive must help them have emotional, digital and social support tools that they can use to detect situations at risk of loneliness among their peer group; elderly people around them.
The detection in the initial phase of these situations, before they become permanent, through the development of a network close to their environment, will allow the beneficiaries to feel accompanied and that they can develop activities that make them feel useful and socially active. The final objective is to find solutions based on research and to improve in this way the health and quality of life of the elderly in the territory.
Beyond financial support, this program aims to promote the knowledge transfer in the field of health encouraging personalized mentoring activities and expert support. The project is endowed with funding of 20.410 euros and is included in the area of action for the elderly and challenges arising from aging.
The TecnoCampus Chair of Social Economy played a fundamental role in the organization of the symposium, which acted as host. Eloi Serrano, director of the department, was the president of the congress and welcomed the participants in the opening plenary session.

A story of physical and psychological abuse, by young people who live adolescence with a pressure that sinks them, in a space where the total lack of adult supervision has irreversible consequences. The novel is a story of overcoming, personal rise and fall, but it also functions as an x-ray into the (darker) bowels of FC Barcelona, an institution known and loved around the world. triumphant focus on it bullying, suffocating relationships and toxic behaviors among teenagers. That is why the events narrated in the novel can easily be transferred to the reality that can be experienced in certain situations in high schools and other centers where young people and teenagers live together.
Ulisses is 13 years old and has just signed for Barça, so he moves to La Masia, where he hopes to achieve his dream of becoming a professional player. From this moment, the illusion of his life turns into a nightmare. triumphant is a novel that causes an almost physical effect on the reader, a book that questions the predatory values on which elite sport is based, and much of our society.

El 4D project aims to create an individualized and personalized mobile application (app) for the management of curricular practices that will serve both students, tutors, supervisors and teachers of each organization that participates in this learning context.
With this technological application it is intended to improve the experience in learning based on healthcare environments. This project is coordinated by researchers Carlos Martínez and Esther Cabrera and by professor Carles García, from TecnoCampus, and has the participation of the University of Medicine of Lublin (Poland), the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (Spain) , Graz University of Technology (Austria), University of Twente (Netherlands), Kubify BV Learning Toolbox (Netherlands) and University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany).
The international conference, which had the participation of more than 100 people from different European countries, served to highlight the advantages and recommendations of incorporating digital tools that make it possible to create a bridge between health institutions and the academic environment . It was also the forum for the presentation of the first result of the project, the report "Key factors in the digitization of clinical practice environments in higher education".
This report, which will soon be published on the project's website, includes different recommendations obtained from the results of the study and which are summarized as follows: 1. Economic issues, technical characteristics, selection of devices, involvement of students and teachers and guidelines and policies are the five key aspects when designing an innovation for digitization in practices. 2. In order for technology to be implemented correctly, the following strategies must be adopted in parallel with technology adoption: training, teamwork, culture, staff involvement and patient empowerment. 3. After implementation, once the innovation has already been introduced into the practice environment and in order to guarantee the success of mobile learning, aspects such as maintenance, support must be taken into account technological, security and Internet access.
Following this event, the 16th transnational project coordination meeting took place on March 17 and XNUMX. This project is financed by the European Commission within the framework of the program Erasmus+ KA220 Cooperation partnerships in higher education.
Since 2015 this subject has had professional musicians and has recorded a large number of student projects, available at TecnoCampus showroom.
This year they were carried out a total of six music composition and production projects and have been recorded in the TecnoCampus audio studio, inaugurated in 2022. The works are of different styles and sounds. The students were able to experience the complete process of creation and production, from the analysis of a scene, the composition and arrangements, and finally the recording, editing and mixing.
This is the highest accreditation currently available and enables the teacher and researcher to gain access to a professorship at any Spanish university. Antonio José Planells is a permanent professor at TecnoCampus in the Degree in Design and Production of Videogames, where he teaches the subjects of introduction to game design and narrative. He is also the director of the emerging research group "Cultura i Tecnologia Lúdica" (CTL), recognized by the Generalitat de Catalunya, and directs, together with professor Víctor Navarro, the "Ludomythologies" research project, funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation .

His main lines of research are universal arguments in video games, theory of fiction and ludo-fictional worlds, and structural metaphors in analog gaming. According to the data of the Institut d'Estadística de Catalunya corresponding to the year 2021, only 8,25% of teachers in the public university system have this accreditation.
The collaborative short film made throughout this term by the Audiovisual Media Degree has been selected in the prestigious Inheritance Festival in Ireland. The animated short film, called ''Extinction'', has been selected to participate in the Inheritance Festival - Spring edition, which will take place in the cities of Dublin, Belfast, Brighton, Sheffield and Kent.
This audiovisual work was made by the students of the subject Drawing and 2D animation, using the rotoscopy technique. Through this work of animation, a call to attention is made about the danger of the disappearance of the fauna, a cry of alarm for the defense of the environment.
The challenge overcome by students Emma Comas Vidal, Jordi Pérez i Esclarin, Andrea Reche Pérez, Maria Salvaña Grajera and Enric Tafalla Izuel to access the final was to design a new concept or innovative service that the hotel could offer to its customers. In addition, the proposal had to consider one of these areas: sustainable tourism, destination experiences, health/wellness tourism or new business trends.
Facing this real challenge has allowed the students to put into practice the academic knowledge gained and their entrepreneurial and innovative skills. Now the finalist team, which has already passed a previous phase, will participate in a workshop that will take place between April and May.
The event will take place over a weekend with workshops taught by experts that will allow students to complete their projects. The work sessions will conclude with a final presentation by all the groups and the announcement of the winning team.
