Taking advantage of the NOVA FCT Industry Open Day Event on October 10th, 2018, The Robotics and Industrial Complex Systems (RICS) group started the RICS Industry Open Day Events together with several Industrial Partners. RICS Industry Open Day gave our partners a chance to network and see the RICS latest developments and attend a brainstorming session with the subject of “Changes & Challenges: New Approach to an Old Idea of University-Industry Collaboration”. Our partners also had the opportunity to visit the NOVA FCT Industry Open Day Event where they could contact NOVA FCT Industrial and Academical Partners.
