This initiative was launched last year with excellent results that demonstrated the success of the collaboration between universities and companies. The mentors advised the assigned teams with enthusiasm, providing documentation, knowledge and a lot of enthusiasm. As a result of the links created between students and technology professionals, many of them were encouraged to attend the debates and participate in the jury of the grand final between the universities of Salamanca and Alcalá. At the end of the League, this collaboration has continued in several cases, both institutionally and with the signing of some young talents by the companies.
