- The new chair will promote research and development of solutions to improve efficiency and sustainability in data centers.
- The collaboration agreement will allow students to carry out internships, end-of-degree projects and doctoral theses in the company.
The company specialized in design and construction, ITERCON, and the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) have strengthened their collaboration with the creation of the chair ‘ITERCON Francisco Luján Corbera’ whose main objective is to promote research, training and technological development in the sectors in which the company works.
The creation of innovative solutions in the design, planning and execution phases of data centers is one of the main lines of work that will be carried out through the new chair. The objective is to find methodologies that allow the creation of more efficient technological buildings in which sustainability plays a very important role.
“Through this agreement, at ITERCON we reaffirm our commitment to education and training, as well as our position as a leading company in the sector in two of the most important areas, currently, technology and sustainability. On the other hand, the different studies and tests that are carried out, within the framework of the new chair, will allow us to improve our business model, offering greater value to our clients” commented the general director of ITERCON, Manuel Marín, during the signing ceremony held in the UPV rectory building.
The chair is directed by the professor from the School of Building Engineering of the UPV, Luis García Ballester, who has assured that “our students will be able to do all kinds of business practices and develop their final master’s degree projects and doctoral theses based on the topics that this chair develops”.
The signing of this new framework agreement was carried out by the rector of the UPV, José E. Capilla, who thanked the company for its confidence in the university and highlighted the importance of university-company collaboration for the transfer of knowledge. The ITERCON management team wanted to pay tribute to the founder of the company, Francisco Luján Corbera, from whom it borrows its name and who marked the company’s axes and values such as resilience, closeness and teamwork that remain intact in the firm.
