The first part of the Porto. For Talent Summer Academy is also made up of Life Talks, that is, individual conversations between a professional and a student that will allow them to find out about functions, academic profiles, career options and other relevant aspects to better understand the real work context.

From September to November, the Meeting Points take place, which are true guided tours to companies of different sectors of activity, size and purposes, giving the chance to contact/question people who work there.
