Interact e Univates inauguram centro de inovação no Tecnovates

Interact Solutions and the University of Vale do Taquari (Univates), lajeado (RS), will inaugurate on April 4 a new innovation center in the Scientific and Technological Park of the Taquari Valley (Tecnovates). The environment will unite the company and the academy in the creation of solutions for business management. The name will be announced on the occasion.

The initiative will be divided into two complementary areas, under the coordination of Interact’s International Business and Project Development sectors: the design of new solutions for the SA-Strategic Adviser Suite and the internationalization of the company, the focus of the 2018 business vision. In addition to Interact employees, the space will bring together professors, students and exchange students from the university. In total, there will be 34 new job positions.

With 600 square meters, the structure has a whole ten environments, both for internationalization, project creation and research and development, as well as for product presentation, videoconferences, interviews and meetings. The rooms bear the names of Interact’s main international countries: Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay.

Tecnovates participates in three integrated science park ecosystems: the Gaucho Innovation Environment Network (Reginp), the National Association of Innovative Enterprise Promoters (Anprotec) and the International Association of Science Parks and Areas of Innovation (IASP). In addition to contributing to international expansion, Interact also joins a so-called group of information technology companies that tie scientific and methodological research to its products.

“A partnership that will be successful for all”

Thus defined the new innovation center the Administrative Coordinator of Tecnovates, Cintia Agostini. “We are pleased to consolidate another partnership with Interact, a company that has been with Univates for many years. But now, as a resident of Tecnovates, they are approaching our goals,” she says.

She highlights fundamental aspects of the project, such as the search for innovation in the areas of education, health and public management. The project team will work with solutions for the main accreditations and certifications of the market, such as ISO, Joint Commission, ONA, SGSST, CEAACES, CNA and similar ones. Employees will also adopt agile methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban and Design Thinking.
