SE-NO-BR - Software Engineering Practices and Experiences Exchange between Norway and Brazil
This project aims to promote excellence in Software Engineering practice by linking high-quality research and education of future researchers from Norway and Brazil. To achieve this goal, this UTFORSK project is structured to promote student and staff exchange, internationalization of education, research cooperation and joint seminars to allow young researchers to discuss their work with international scientists.
MOBILITY TRIP TO BRAZIL 2022
Why this project?
Why this project?
Norway has a growing demand for IT professionals, projected to outgrow the educational production to an estimated shortage of 10.000 professionals by 2030. Similar trends are documented elsewhere, as in the EU and US. In Brazil, the deficit can reach 70.000 by 2024. The Digital Agenda for Norway and Digital Agenda for Europe call for more and better candidates from IT studies. This project is a response to this acute need.
Software permeates all aspects of society. In tomorrow's digital, automated, and globally connected society, software will be of even larger importance for solving global challenges. Software engineering is the research field that focuses on establishing new knowledge on key factors for the successful development of some of the most complex systems developed by humans.
No country alone will be able to fulfil the demands. The workforce needs to be prepared to understand the cultural, technical and social aspects that the process of developing software have to address, which goes beyond only the programming activities.
More About the Project
How can you participate/Collaborate?
Students participating in this project will be entitled to participate in all activities of the project. Our focus are on students that are working in Software Engineering and have interest in the area as their career path. Participants can apply online at any time. And they will have the different activities to choose where and when they would like to participate. Some activities are open for all interested in the project and some will be available for the students that have fulfilled some criteria of participation to the project. This is specially applied to the mobility activities, where we seek for students that are actively participating in the project and that can benefit of the mobility activities.
Companies participating in the project will be entitled to participate in most activities of the projects. Companies will benefit of the participation of the project by exchanging experiences on software engineering, learning about different methods and techniques used in the other countries for software development, learn about other culture for software development, discuss with software engineering researchers and participate in the workshops about different topics in software engineering, have opportunities to recruit students from the different countries. Companies will also contribute to the project by sharing practices and possibly opening opportunities for students internships.
