The Angelini University Award!

The Angelini University Award! is an initiative promoted by Angelini Pharmaceutical for university students attending university level education in Portugal.

The aim of the contest is to foster multidisciplinary projects that may have a practical applicability, through the promoting of innovation and youth entrepreneurship.

Learning opportunity

Angelini wants to give participants the opportunity to put their academic knowledge into practice by using it on a project that is in touch with business and social reality. This is one of the ways Angelini Pharmaceutical chose to strengthen its corporate values and to promote the company to the university public, encouraging them to interact with the company in an area of such high importance for society: Health.
