The Talent Incubator of the University of Granada held its sixth annual Alumni Meeting on Friday, December 1st, with an intensive program developed at the Health Technology Campus. The event was attended by teachers, sponsors, and over 100 alumni from the 19 programs that the Incubator has developed over the past years in collaboration with leading companies such as Alight, T-Systems, AWS, Google, Lactalis Puleva, and Leroy Merlin, among others. The meeting served as a platform for alumni and faculty to share memories, new experiences, and strengthen their professional bonds.
The alumni events of the Talent Incubator are part of the “Talent UGR Alumni Lounge” initiative, which aims to be a vibrant and collaborative community. Different group dynamics were carried out during the event, coordinated by Professor Lola Vidal, co-director of the Incubator, aimed at strengthening bonds through interaction, experience, and fun. Subsequently, Professor Blanca Delgado, coordinator of the Incubator’s alumni program, interviewed Professor Pilar Aranda, former rector of the University of Granada, followed by a valuable colloquium with the attendees on how to cultivate, build, and manage talent.
Finally, a roundtable discussion on the “Future of Talent and Professional Opportunities in the Era of Artificial Intelligence” was held, with the participation of the current Rector of the University of Granada, Pedro Mercado; the Vice President for Application Services at Alight, Javier Toni, and the Senior Advisor at T-Systems Iberia, Aitor Vinós. The discussion was moderated by Professor Alberto Aragón, Professor of Business Organization at the University of Granada and co-director of the Talent Incubator.
Throughout the event, recognitions were awarded to three individuals who the Talent Incubator and its alumni selected “for their personal commitment to strengthening the professional opportunities of young people through the relationships between university and company” during these years of operation of the Talent Incubator.
The event was concluded by Rector Pedro Mercado, followed by a cocktail sponsored by T-Systems and Alight companies at the university campus dining facilities.
