Last 16th of November, CommUnity members and Polytechniciens gathered in Ecole Polytechnique to discuss how fear of nuclear energy hinders a sustainable future in the short term. The output was great! And I would like to thank all the antendees that make it so interesting! If you didn't come, don't worry, the CommUnity Post has produced a blog post in our platform, that you can read at this link.
Moreover, last weekend in collaboration with other KICs, we created the EIT Alumni StartUp Days. All the weekend, 33 different teams and more than 130 people developed and competed with their own startup ideas!

Research Scientist at Veolia at VeoliaI am a mechanical engineer currently in the last stage of the internatinal PhD thesis within the SELECT+ program, with Ecole des Mines de Nantes (Nantes, France) and Instituto Superior Técnico (Lisbon, Portugal) as home and host universities (respectively), and Veolia (Paris, France) as an industrial partner. My research is focused on the direct (changed weather conditions) and indirect (building renovation) impacts of climate change on building heating and cooling demand, and the consequent impact on the development of new generation of district heating and cooling networks. Additionally, I am enrolled in KIC InnoEnergy PhD School, with the focus on developing entrepreneurial skills and obtaining additional level of education within the fields of business plan development, venture capitalism, team management and negotiations in corporate theater, through the series of courses and seminars held by multiple universities and institutes across Europe (IST (Lisbon), GEM (Grenoble), INSA (Lyon), ESADE (Barcelona), UPC (Barcelona), AGH (Krakow), KU Leuven (Leuven)) and many more. The involvement in these two PhD tracks enabled an in-depth knowledge and experience in problem solving through the design thinking process. The opportunity to collaborate with industrial and educational institutions in more than 10 countries and work with nationalities from four continents, significantly contributed to my understanding of cultural differences, leadership and team management.
