ABSTRACT:

Richi Talent is a Richi Foundation initiative in collaboration with MISTI Spain(MIT International Science & Technology Initiatives) and it is created with the aim of raising funds to combat childhood cancer, through 3 initiatives:

Richi Talent, Richi Social Entrepeneurs, Richi Music: their goal is to identify, incentivize and support promising young people who, in the future and in different fields of science, humanities and arts, will play a crucial role in the social progress of a whole country.

Richi Talent aims to awaken the vocation of the most talented Baccalaureate students through an annual competition. The initiative is divided into two phases with the aim of solving, through a research project, a theme-based challenge set by companies and institutions of international prestige.

In this talk, Elisabet Santesmases, Executive Director of Richi Talent, will explain their project and how the Research Institutions can collaborate with this initiative.
