On February 28, representatives of SEAT-Martorrell, who travelled to Alcoy to present the challenge to the students, presented the ‘SEAT TEXTILE CHALLENGE’ prizes, organized by the AITEX-UPV Chair.
This activity is part of the AITEX-UPV Chair programme of events, whose objective is that students of the Polytechnic University of Valencia, working in multidisciplinary groups, promote innovative ideas on the development of new functionalities, using textile technology in vehicles.
The challenge is open to students of the Polytechnic University of Valencia studying any degree or master, who wish to innovate in the automotive sector.
A first prize of €2,000 will be awarded to the winning team and a second prize of €1,000 for the runners up. In addition, SEAT will select an applicant with the right profile from among all the participants to become a trainee.
The final will be held at the end of June at the SEAT facilities in Martorell, where the finalists can visit the SEAT plant in Catalonia.
