UOC-RMF Prizes awarded second year running 

The Ramon Molinas Foundation and the Open University of Catalonia are now accepting applications for the UOC-RMF Prizes, with the aim of recognising the best final projects of engineering technicians, engineering graduates or master’s students studying Information Technology, Multimedia and Telecommunication programmes at an educational institution. The prizes are open to all those students who have completed, presented and passed their final projects during the semesters of the academic year of 2014/2015.

The second awarding of the UOC-RMF Prizes are made up of three categories: Security and Telecommunication, Information Technology and Multimedia. Each applicant will be assigned a category automatically according to the work they present. The presentation period for projects is from the 13th July to the 7th September inclusive. A formal panel made up of academics and sector professionals divided into three commissions will evaluate the projects presented and will choose six finalists (two per category). The finalists will be published on the 28th October. The panel will be considering the innovation of the work, its technical complexity, its applicability and utility, and the clarity and quality of the presentation.

The selected finalists will present their projects at an event on the 5th November in Barcelona. Once the cycle of presentations has finished, the panel will select the projects they want to award (one for each category) and will start the prize-giving ceremony. The best final projects will receive a cheque for 3,000 euros.
