The delivery ceremony has claimed the value of knowledge to drive technological advances and guidance to society in the face of the great challenges of the 21st century. Award-winning researchers have developed their work in movements as disparate as the exploration of the most elementary components of matter, the creation of new materials with unusual properties, the manufacture of mobile synthetic cells for transporting drugs, the invention of optical technologies to improve the vision or development of quantum computing.
The Best Article awards in the RSEF publications have been for Juan A. Monsoriu, director of the ETSID, with his colleagues Isabel Salinas Marín, Marcos H. Giménez, Juan A. Sans and Juan C. Castro-Palacio, professors of the SmartPhysics project and authors of the article “How to visualize forced oscillations on your Smartphone”.
Amazon has announced the launch of the first edition of Amazon Campus Challenge in Spain. The contest offers students from all over the country the opportunity to partner with real companies, most of them small and medium enterprises (SMEs), to help them start selling online at Amazon and expand their business to other European countries.
The contest is open to students over 18 years of age who are studying at a higher level during the academic year 2019-2020 in a center in Spain. The registration period is open until December 20, 2019 and teams can register on the challenge website: https://www.amazoncampuschallenge.es/es/. Teams will have to choose a company that has not yet created an account to sell on Amazon. After identifying a company to collaborate with, students will define and implement an e-commerce strategy for their businesses before the competition begins on February 17. To succeed, they will have to delve into all the possibilities that Amazon offers to develop a brand, set up specialized stores, promote their products, distribute and export.
Amazon benefits generated by the contest will be donated to a non-profit organization. For a complete description of the contest and the rules, see the website: https://www.amazoncampuschallenge.es/es/.
“Amazon Campus Challenge is a great opportunity for students to apply what they have learned academically and develop their business skills in a real environment,” said Mariangela Marseglia, Amazon VP and Country Manager in Spain and Italy. “Students can offer a lot to small businesses: a fresh perspective, bold ideas and the opportunity to explore online sales as an additional and successful channel.”
The contest will last until the end of May 2020 and at the beginning of June a panel of Amazon executives will choose the winning teams based on turnover, units sold by the company and performance note, based on customer feedback and index of Defective orders or delay. There are 28,000 euros in prizes, of which 10,000 euros will go to the winning team. In addition, the finalist and winning teams will receive AWS credits through the AWS Educate program. Subject to qualification and availability criteria, winning teams may have the opportunity to have an interview to work at Amazon.
This talk will give a general description about the LISA space mission of ESA / NASA and one of its most interesting sources. Gravitational capture of an object of stellar mass through a supermassive black hole allows us to map space-time around these black holes. This phenomenon corresponds to having a camera taking hundreds of thousands of photos of spacetime, from all angles and distances of the black hole. In addition, we can extract with minimum errors parameters such as the mass of the black hole and its spin without doing any modeling, since it is a direct reading.

Several groups of the university ecosystem converge to give a worthy solution to a Sagunto project
VALENCIA. The New House is a strange place. It is a reception center for immigrants that is two kilometers from the urban center of Sagunto. Between orange trees, it has a highway closer than a habitable house. Taking away everything pompous that the name may have, it is a place to go as a last option before the street and after arriving in a country like Spain from an area like sub-Saharan Africa. The center hosts half a hundred migrants, each with their history and urgency, with their expectations and disappointments. Some stay for a few months, others come just to be in the orange campaign and continue rolling around Spain to deseasonalize their salary, others have been almost a decade without seeing their family since they left their country of origin.
While it serves to patch the drama of unattended immigration in the locality, the center has serious problems of infrastructure and economic viability , more when public administrations have shown more back than hands. With all this, it seems that the answer has come from another place: design and architecture.
It is Friday, and in a classroom on the fourth floor of the School of Design Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Valencia, a dozen students meet with their teacher, Begoña Sáiz Mauleón , coordinator of equality actions and cooperation development of the School. Today’s class consists of making a problem tree. The object of study? The New House, which they met a few months ago and have already visited several times outside of school hours.

This is University Development Cooperation , a subject that only a handful of students have chosen but that they have precisely asked to channel, not only a practical sense to the knowledge that they are acquiring in the career, but also a social sense: “the subject it consists of incorporating the human rights-based approach as a philosophy of analysis, development and intervention within engineering studies “, explains Sáiz.
Today’s activity consists of pressing the different infrastructure problems and living conditions that can be improved, such as the electrical installation (which is very precarious) or the almost zero availability of hot water. The students participate very actively, remembering what they saw in their visit, asking the motives and the stories that have led the migrants to live there … “The objective is that our intervention generates changes in the existing reality. This happens, obligatorily, by a phase of contextualization, which consists of observing, analyzing, interacting and asking. After this necessary process comes the intervention proposal “says the teacher. Currently, in the classroom they are defining the problem tree and the objectives tree through the design thinking method, commonly used in product design.
The project of the subject has been addressed so far in problems outside Spain and La Casa Nueva has allowed them to strengthen ties and think long term : “Our action is a bilateral cooperation, and while they demand us and we can apply our knowledge , we will be there. The project will continue in class in consecutive years. If this year we have worked in the phase of knowledge of the reality, problems and objectives, the next course will work on the action, and anyone who wants to continue previous courses can collaborate. Action also means having money to carry out an intervention. We are also taking care of that, “says Sáiz.
The look of the design is in charge of putting a solution to what has always been done from the urgency and what has also been ignored from a more professional point of view, a relatively common situation in social projects that, due to lack of funds, make the gratuitousness of its flag, and with it, the precariousness of some conditions in which users develop it. Design becomes a solution here, implementing the usual processes in the commercial world and applying them with a much more social perspective.
– Why design can be a solution for a social problem of such depth? – More than the design, the designer would say. I understand design as a social and moral responsibility, and from that perspective, it must be at the service of the whole society. We have only to look at the problem generated by the indiscriminate use of plastics, and their presence in the sea. We have our share of responsibility.
Before summer, they will have the diagnosis made. The next course. And although the academic deadlines will lengthen the process, while going to La Casa Nueva is an inspiration for them and to create those relationships beyond the technical with the migrants who reside there.
Architecture, or how to create a home without the need to build it
This year, as if by magic, several initiatives have come together at La Casa Nueva. So, before the Begoña Sáiz class, Projecte Dempeus approached , driven by alumni of Architecture of the same UPV and who have already developed a couple of projects before, always from volunteering and social architecture.
In parallel, Dempeus is also working to solve some of the conditions of the shelter in Sagunto. Their process has been different from that of the design students: “We started with La Casa Nueva to make visits to understand how they lived there and to get to know them.” The idea is not to go directly with a solution, but to be born from within the center itself. We try to contribute our technical vision (from Architecture and from our formation in cooperation to development) to generate bonds and to know and experience the real problems “, explains Belén Fernández , one of the promoters.

Their work, until now, has been to organize a series of participatory workshops in which they have put the university volunteers in contact with the reality of La Casa Nueva in order to improve aspects that do not necessarily have to be architectural, but are related more with the own habitability. The idea starts from the development of the concept of home , which is supposed to try to aspire to this place.
In this sense, one of the workshops was devoted to approaching the concept that users had of the center. They handed out a folio and asked them to graphically represent what they considered a home. They drew people, a whole community of houses made of canes and mud, houses very far from aesthetics and European construction … On the other side, they had to draw The New House, and the contrast of perception was hardly assumable: ” the cultural differences make your concept of home can not be given as such in Valencia , and that translated to perhaps not only need to improve a physical condition of the center, but feel loved and cared for, “says Fernandez.
In this sense, it plays against the temporality with which the majority of users assume their stay in the center (whether later or not) and the hostility breathed by the authorities and the population in the rest of the ecosystems in which they live. they develop their routines.
After having made their own problem tree and spending time in La Casa Nueva understanding how they live and how they occupy the space, the participants of the workshops present their proposed solutions for the center on Thursday. One of them will be evaluated and carried out. Perhaps the improvement is aimed at how to order the coexistence of the different uses that each of the users gives to the dining room. Or to expand the shadow area, because there is not much, a lot of leisure time and free time is wasted. Or to paint a wall to pacify the aesthetics of the center. Or to make technical improvements such as sealing windows.

The participants come from different points of the university, from Fine Arts to all types of engineering. The common point is that look from architecture, which revolves around the habitability and human development of space. ” It’s good to distort the idea that architecture only gives you a place to live , because maybe a shack can be more a home than a luxury villa, it’s about cultural conceptions and experiences,” comments Projecte Dempeus.
Beyond the work of these months, the idea is to continue to strengthen the relationships created these months and continue working hand in hand with users and also the volunteer team that has been driving the center since 2006.
A mural to make a space more livable
These days, La Casa Nueva has also been one of the spaces in which the urban art festival Més Que Murs has been held , organized by the City Council of Sagunto. The contest, which develops almost a dozen murals in different parts of the town, wanted to invite the students of Fine Arts of the UPV to improve the appearance of the exterior facade. They thus cover an old graffiti, which had been degraded with the passage of time. This action, which may seem minimal compared to the cluster of infrastructure problems that the center suffers, actually fulfills an aesthetic function that makes it more pleasant, not only the passage of users, but the perception that these represent of people passing by. over there.

“I started writing my first novel when I was 11 years old“
[ 26/04/2019 ]
María Romero Pérez, student of the third year of the Degree in Aerospace Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), is the winner of the XV Short Story Literary Contest Alonso Zamora Vicente for her work Pestaña vacío.
The award, granted since 2005 by the University of Nebrija, carries with it a prize of 1,400 euros (100 of them through a gift voucher in La Librería de Hoyo), a diploma, an institutional gift, and printed and digital editions of the victor story
The aim of the contest is to encourage writing, from the academic field, among university students, pre-university students and staff of the different university communities.
“A new push at a time when I needed to believe more in my stories”
Happy for the award, which was delivered to her at the Madrid university on Wednesday, María acknowledges that the prize has, for her, “a meaning that goes beyond recognition or an economic amount”, since it has meant for her “an new push in the way of writing, a pat on the back at a time when I needed to believe more in my stories. ”
However, it is not the first time that the literary talent of this young woman born in Benidorm on October 31, 1998 is recognized. At the age of 16, he won the Jordi Sierra i Fabra for young writers with Cenizas de un octubre helado – published by the publishing house SM – and, subsequently, he won the 1st Fotohistorias Contest Feel.
“When I was little, I always filled my notebooks with my stories,” recalls the student at the School of Design Engineering (ETSID-UPV), “and when I was 11, I started my first novel, it was at the beginning of my high school education when I started. to write constantly. “
Engineering and literature, two fundamental passions in her life.
To her liking for the letters, Maria opted for the scientific branch when choosing her studies, and does not consider both paths as mutually exclusive.
“Encasing us in one field or another without being able to peek at new ones is a mistake: for me, engineering and literature are fundamental parts of my life, and the passion for one does not mean abandonment or less interest in the other,” he says. the student of the UPV. “On the contrary, both fields give me very different knowledge and feelings, so by alternating them I can stay motivated without falling into an eternal routine,” he adds.
In fact, facing the future, María acknowledges that her dream “is to continue writing while I continue my scientific development, I would like to dedicate myself professionally to writing while working in the field of aerospace engineering.
Maybe in the maintenance part, or in design … I’m not clear. “
With regard to the winning story, María points out that Pestaña vacía “tells the story of two very old sisters who, after being widowed, begin to live together in the house of their father’s town.”
“The story,” he continues, “narrates two daily episodes of their lives with traditionalist, superstitious, and sometimes dramatic touches, and the idea came up one afternoon, as a result of collecting various customs that exist in my family.”
Satisfied in a UPV that “is focused on the education of its students”
A great example of the comprehensive education that the UPV works to promote, María feels particularly satisfied with the institution in which she studies, combining her scientific vocation with her literary passion.
“The UPV is focused on the education of its students, offering us opportunities for our academic development at all times: courses, business talks, internships … From my school, the ETSID, the formation of different teams is promoted to develop different projects “, concludes María, a clear example of the professional profile and person to whom, surely, she expects a bright future as an engineer, writer … or maybe, who knows, in both areas.
We continue to help the UPV Talent. New appointment on May 16 at ETSID.
Intended for students of Degree and Master of Design and students of other degrees with vocation and interest in design.

The Hyperloop team of the Universitat Politècnica de València will install in Cheste the test track to test their new subsonic train prototype. Once built, it will become the first lane of this type installed in Spain and one of the few in Europe. The team intends to carry out all the tests and validations for the Hyperloop Pod Competition IV.
Hyperloop is an idea of means of transport based on a system of large vacuum tubes, which circulate some capsules capable of transporting passengers and goods with speeds of more than 1,000 km / h. At the end of 2015, the visionary Elon Musk launched the Hyperloop Pod Competition and encouraged students from around the world to participate by proposing ideas. Since then, the competition has held three editions, in which the UPV team has established itself as one of the best in the world.
The first Hyperloop test rail in Spain.
Shortly, work will begin on the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, an area that has a capacity of 120,000 spectators and which hosts different scoring events of the Motorcycling World Championship. The length of the track will oscillate between 100 and 300 meters, which will allow the team to carry out studies on the suspension, navigation and levitation systems. It will be the first Hyperloop test track in our country and one of the few of this type that Europe currently has. The idea is to arrive ready for the competition that will take place in Los Angeles from July 15 to 21, 2019, and be able to fight for the victory.
Sponsor 1 meter of rail
To achieve the test track that presents the best performance, the team has launched a microwdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Thanks to this initiative, everyone can sponsor one meter of the road (or more), and leave their name inscribed in one of the most exciting transportation projects of the future.
Although the team has exceeded the first objective, the campaign is still open until Thursday, April 25, 2019. If you want to help the 40 students who make Hyperloop UPV, do not hesitate.
The Universitat Politècnica de València participates, representing Spain, in this European project approved in its call 2018 and which will last two years.
The UPV, through the professors of the Drawing Department Chele Esteve and Manuel Martínez Torán, will host the ETSID the Craft Your Future project partners meeting on Thursday 4 April (ref 2018-1-NL01-KA202-038952) , funded by the European Union through the Erasmus + K2 program in which they participate as partners:
Learning Hub Friesland Foundation
Stichting House of Design
The Fabric Association
NGPI Tryavna School” (Gabrovo)
Oceanonaranja (FabLab VLC)
Universitat Politècnica de València
Craft Your Future is aimed at young students from different backgrounds, from different European countries, encouraging them to learn from each other. It is aimed at teachers of vocational training and universities, with the intention of improving the development of teaching methods and content, with the aim of strengthening the future world of employability of its students. The objective of the project includes the collaboration and the promotion of regional alliances (local authorities, cultural centers, workshops, companies, organizations, etc.), in order to:
– Allow students to get closer, get involved and value more the traditions and heritage of their region.
– Asegurar que los jóvenes tengan el potencial, el conocimiento y las competencias para ser el cambio hacia la sostenibilidad que nuestro mundo necesita.
– Ensure that young people have the potential, knowledge and skills to be the change towards sustainability that our world needs.
– Initiate intercultural conversation and exchange among young people about cultural heritage, technological trends and circular economy.
– Increase the set of learning opportunities for students, in order to develop their skills for their future work life.
– Preserve heritage through the use of culture as a driving force for creative innovation, provide solutions to waste management problems, and take advantage of low-cost technologies to develop innovative ideas.
– Develop the skills of teachers, to enable them to work with their students in “real” cases.
– Strengthen the network of universities and higher education centers, fostering regional cooperation with stakeholders.
– Create bridges between generations. Young people will better understand the older generation, sharing their knowledge and vice versa.
The project takes into account the EU’s key priorities, while being consistent with the needs that partners experience in their daily practice. The project links regions with similar needs, but involves partners with specific experience in the three different themes: The Netherlands (as experts in circular economy), Spain (with experience in digital creation and manufacturing technologies) and Bulgaria (specialized in traditional crafts ). In addition, the aim is to initiate an intercultural dialogue among young people on cultural heritage, trends and new techniques and the circular economy, which specifically require a transnational approach.

Nazariy Harvat is a graduate in Aerospace Engineering specializing in Air Navigation currently working in Palma de Mallorca, on an airline called Thomas Cook Airlines Balearics. He finished the degree in July of 2017, the month in which he presented his Final Degree Project.
On March 15 he will explain to us at a general level how an airline or commercial operator works, that is, the regulations that it must follow, the structure of it, the functions of the different departments that compose it and the organizations with which it must collaborate to be able to carry out its tasks and achieve its objectives.
Nazariy holds the post of Compliance Control Auditor, which is part of one of the departments of an airline.
It will explain what your work is and what other opportunities exist in a commercial operator (or in an organization that usually works together with the commercial operator) that may be interesting for an aeronautical engineer.
Finally, we will make a brief summary of his professional experience and will expose a series of conclusions that he has derived from it, in the form of advice that may be interesting and useful for someone recently graduated in Aerospace Engineering.
On March 5, the I Info-Day of the EDIBO Project (European Digital Bootcamps) took place at the School of Design Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV). The event was aimed at presenting the project to the university community, the business community and the general public. The event was opened by Ms. Rosa Puchades Pla, Vice-Chancellor of Social Responsibility and Cooperation of the UPV; Mr. Juan A. Monsoriu Serra, Director of the ETS of Design Engineering at the UPV; Mrs. Silvia Terrasa Barrena, Director of the ETS of Computer Engineering of the UPV; and D. Manuel Civera Salvador, Mayor of Llíria. All of them agreed on the importance of developing initiatives that provide solutions to youth unemployment and that, therefore, as highlighted by Ms. Rosa Puchades, are included in the commitments of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. Afterwards, the researcher responsible for the EDIBO project, D. Lenin G. Lemus Zúñiga, a researcher at the UPV, gave an overview of the problem in which the project is based on a set of data on youth unemployment in Spain and the business demand of experts in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Then the round table began on the theme “Knowledge and key competences to promote the labor insertion of young people in the ICT sector ” They participated in her D. Josep Enric García, manager of EMT Valencia; Mr. Ernesto del Valle Blanco, director of Human Resources and manager of the Alfatec ICT Training Center; Ms. Marga Aparicio Martínez from the Chamber of Commerce of Valencia; Mrs. Silvia Cuixeres Torres, Head of Purchasing Central Innovative and Sustainable Services of the Diputación de Valencia; Ms. Malak Kubessi Pérez, Head of the Orientation, Training and Employment Section of the UPV; and Ms. Begoña Sáiz Mauleón, researcher of the EDIBO Project and professor at the UPV. Mr. José Manuel Catalá Civera, director of the ITTAC institute of the UPV, moderated the interventions.
The different contributions served to create a moment of shared reflection on the situation of young people at risk of social exclusion. In addition, each speaker presented the initiatives that their institutions or companies were carrying out to improve the employability of the youth sector as well as to respond to the demands of companies in the field of ICTs. A small debate was then generated in the that also attended the event. Among other aspects, the gap between university and business was addressed; and the need to strengthen ICT training to improve both the employability of young people and respond to the need for computerization of companies.
What is EDIBO?
The EDIBO project is sponsored by the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment and in which the UPV participates along with institutions from five other European countries: Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Greece and Italy. The UPV group, led by Lenin G. Lemus Zúñiga, consists of 11 researchers from the UPV belonging to the ICT Group vs. Climate Change of the University Institute of Information and Communication Technologies (ITACA). EDIBO is based on an innovative approach , inspired by the Rapid Technology Skills Training of the World Bank. At first, the set of collaborating companies defines their needs in ICT and training programs are developed from them. This training is offered to a group of young people between 25 and 29 years old at risk of social or labor exclusion, who are neither studying nor working. After the training period, the students carry out an internship in one of the collaborating companies, being able to obtain a labor contract at the end. At the end of the 36 months of the project, in 2021, EDIBO will have involved 1050 young Europeans forming them in the ICT sector and reactivating their labor insertion capacities.
The ETSID welcomes in its hall the exhibition “Engineers + in Design”, that defines itself as “a pretext to talk about design from engineering and give visibility to the role of women in this professional profile”.
The exhibition will remain on 08/03/19 to 12/04/19
