2nd University Smartcard Innovation Forum

As part of the Unisinos Smart Card Observatory project, this week I am participating in the 2nd Innovation Forum promoted by Santander Universities. The event is occurring in La Serena, Chile. In the Forum we are discussing the innovation related to the University smart card, which has been evolving from a physical smartcard, to a virtual application that is available in the smartphone.

The event starts with a meeting of the research groups that work with Santander University Smart Card in the world: Observatorio TUI de la Universidad de Murcia, Observatorio Tecnológico de la Tarjeta Universitaria Inteligente de La Universidad de Cantabria, Observatorio TUI da Universidade Federal Fluminense, Observatorio TUI de La Universidad de Valparaíso and Observatório Cartão Unisinos.

Hello world!

Welcome to the new Today is the beginning of a new site, hopefully with more and up to dated content. As the new trend today, the site starts as a “soft opening”, which is much better than the old, and by no means glamour, “under construction”.

This version of the site has many improvements over the last one:

  1. CMS: WordPress instead of Concrete 5 (for me really an upgrade);
  2. Hopefully (I really mean hopefully) with updated content;
  3. Now in English.  Não fala inglês? ¿No hablan Inglés? Sie nicht Englisch sprechen? Vous ne parlez pas anglais? Try / Experimente / Versuchen / Tenter Duolingo App;
  4. More soon (part of the soft opening movement).


So, that’s it for now. See you around 😉
