In February, Padua hosted the Urban Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition, promoted by the Guangzhou International Sister Cities University Alliance (GISU).

Created in 2018, the GISU Alliance, for which the University of Padua is among the founding universities, is committed to establishing a multilateral exchange between scholars from participating universities. The Alliance of Guangzhou International Sister-City Universities (GISU) currently includes 18 members, representing 15 countries, and 17 sister and friendly cities, with a combined population of almost 38 million, over half a million students and 44,000 faculty and staff.

Promoted by the GISU Alliance and organized by the University of Padua, the third Urban Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition is a business plan challenge that concludes on November 15 in the Auditorium of the Botanical Garden.

Divided into teams, graduate and undergraduate student finalists are tasked with promoting sustainable urban development through scientific and technological innovation.

Each team will propose a business plan that illustrates how the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals can benefit from their projects with a specific focus on innovation, multidisciplinary, entrepreneurship and innovation, and by submitting a video pitch and an oral presentation.

Admission to the event is by invitation only and is held as part of the program of celebrations for the 800th anniversary of the University of Padua.
