• Industry Keynote: Vladimir Djapic, CEO of H2O ROBOTICS, will share his insights on the latest industry trends and future directions.
• Poster Sessions: Two poster sessions will showcase cutting-edge research and projects by students and professionals alike.
• Graduation Ceremony: The event will celebrate the achievements of the first cohort of MIR graduates.
• Shared Experiences by MIR Explorer Graduates: Alumni will share their experiences and career paths since completing the program.
• Robotics Championship: Teams will compete in a thrilling robotics championship, demonstrating their innovative solutions and technical skills.

Participants can also look forward to social events that include a Reborn Baixa-Chiado Walking Tour, a glimpse into Lisbon’s historic and cultural heart, and a visit to the Oceanário de Lisboa, one of the largest aquariums in Europe.

The main event will be hosted at Tecnico’s Centro de Congressos, while the robotics championship will take place at Centro Náutico do Parque das Nações.

Students involved in the MIR international program will receive a prestigious double degree, recognized across Europe and providing full access to PhD programs.
