“The Novabase Academy provides access to one of the fastest-growing industries, where new talent can join multidisciplinary teams and work on innovative challenges and products on an international scale. We will continue to invest in this program so that we can keep attracting the talent needed to address market demands in an increasingly more competitive sector,” explains Ricardo Nunes, head of People and Organization.
In 2018, the Novabase Academy received more than 2,500 applications. Roadshows held at universities and polytechnic institutes throughout the country were followed by intensive training while boarding for two weeks, where the chosen trainees built a bridge between the academic and corporate worlds.
Since its creation in 2006, around 1,500 young people have been hired under the Novabase Academy, which has also been held in two more countries outside of Portugal. To supplement this program, Novabase now has strong ties with universities, with strategic partnerships and involvement in numerous joint initiatives at several points throughout the country.
