Tech.mt takes on its perspectives published on the Faculty of ICT publication.
In 2 articles – ‘From STEM education to Innovation’ and ‘Tech.mt can get you started’, we highlight how STEM-related subjects can lead students and academia to be resilient in innovation and entrepreneurship. Throughout this journey, Tech.mt is here to get you started and assist you in every step of the way, towards being a pioneer in the ever-growing tech sector.
Malta’s potential in the technology sector is growing and so are the opportunities.
At Tech.mt we have always been committed to support and nurture a strong talent pool in turn, satisfying the demand of the current and future local Tech industry. We strive to assist students during and after their studies while also providing a platform for start-ups, students and academia to promote their work and celebrate their success.
This, through various initiatives that we have ongoing. One to mention is the strategic partnership with industry-leading experts to assist students and academia in taking their innovative business ideas forward. Through this initiative, partners share their business knowledge, industry experience and skills with beneficiaries to help them create a holistic business model. Tech.mt aims to motivate start-ups in being more open to a digital future and ensure that their business is agile and ready to adopt new innovative ideas. Furthermore, Tech.mt strives to provide different opportunities for young entrepreneurs to assist them in upskilling and discover new prospects for their business.
Students who wish to further their studies can now benefit from a cooperation agreement between Tech.mt, the University of Malta and eight Italian Universities which aims to give students the possibility to further their education within the technological industry. Through this collaboration, spearheaded by Tech.mt, the University of Malta partnered with the University of Camerino, University of Catania, University of Ferrara, University of Genoa, University of Milano, University of Perugia, University of Piemonte Orientale and the University of Verona. All universities are constantly developing new study areas within the fields of computer science, engineering and medical bioinformatics amongst others.
This agreement enables enhanced collaboration through student exchanges, organization of conferences, courses and seminars. Through this collaboration Tech. mt aims to facilitate networking and socio-economical discussions between Italy and Malta while creating innovative study paths and joint research possibilities for students to discover further opportunities.
Tech.mt is further collaborating with the University of Malta on many other initiatives. One to mention is the collaboration with the University of Malta Racing (UoMR) – a team of students who have designed and are currently building a Formula Style race car. Through our efforts we aim at showcasing this exceptional talent on a local and international level.
At Tech.mt we are committed to support innovative ideas by students and start-ups and provide them with the right tools to take their ideas to the next level. We are supporting young entrepreneurs by facilitating connections and providing them with the right tools to expand their innovations. In May, Tech.mt sponsored the Digital Innovation Signature Award during the JAYE Malta Finals and Awards Night. This award recognized young entrepreneurs who were best able to put their digital skills into practice to conceive an innovative business idea and creatively use digital innovations.
Furthermore, an Entrepreneurs’ Handbook is being currently compiled by Tech.mt, which will equip students with all the necessary practical information on what it entails to be an entrepreneur. This will provide information on financials, operations, marketing analysis, research and marketing tactics amongst other industry-relevant topics.
We don’t just strive to build a strong talent pool and to satisfy demand of the current and future local industry, but we also seek to recognize and celebrate the best of Maltese talent, ambition and achievement in multiple categories of our digital ecosystem.
The eBusiness Awards, powered by Tech.mt, will be launched this July with a dedicated award for Best ICT Academic Dissertation. The eBusiness Awards are a prestigious endorsement of Maltese success in delivering projects, initiatives, solutions or other achievements in the digital realm. We invite you to submit your projects for these awards and/or get in touch to learn more about how we can support you in your future endeavours.
