The MERIT Project is showcased at the UPC’s booth at MWC24

The Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – BarcelonaTech (UPC), represented by the UPC Technology Center (CIT UPC), has participated at the MWC Barcelona 2024, the world’s largest and most influential connectivity event, with more than 100,000 visitors, held from 26 to 29 February at the Gran Via venue of the Fira de Barcelona. MWC Barcelona 2024 brought together connectivity leaders from 205 countries and territories, exploring industry topics, including AI. It convened policymakers who enable the digital economy, industry leaders, and attendees from across the mobile ecosystem.

During the event, UPC showcased its technological capabilities and some prototypes of projects and solutions developed by the University in the areas of smart connectivity, mobility, and industry, including 5G and security in mobile technologies. The UPC booth was located in the Catalonia Pavilion from the Government of Catalonia (Congress Square). 

One of the featured projects at the UPC stand was MERIT, presented through a dedicated corporate leaflet and a QR brochure specifically designed for the event.

As one of the projects that were showcased, promotion was conducted for the MERIT project and the new Master’s programme, scheduled to commence in the upcoming academic year. This promotion targeted companies expected to benefit from acquiring new knowledge and skills in the fields of Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence, both central themes of the Congress.

Exacaster and DIZNE, members of the MERIT project consortium, had the opportunity to participate in the event and visit the UPC booth. This provided us with the chance to exchange impressions on the project’s development face-to-face. Additionally, they gained firsthand insight not only into the communication efforts undertaken at the booth regarding the MERIT project, but also into the other projects presented.

Other projects were demonstrated, among which:
