Get to know the winners of the Incentive Award and what each one of them thinks about the present and the future of the University.

David Couto de Sousa

Born 19 years ago in Castelões (Penafiel), a place that means a lot to him, David Couto de Sousa confesses that his choice for the University of Porto came a lot from “the possibility of being able to continue going home regularly”. But if the location was one of the essential points in the decision, David does not fail to highlight the value of the “very prestigious Faculty of Economics (FEP)”, which is now his home.

Inês de Castro

The “prestige of the institution” and the “good experiences” were the driving forces that led Inês de Castro to choose the Faculty of Economics of the University of Porto (FEP) as her home for the next few years. From her first year as an Economics undergraduate student, the young lady from São Mamede de Infesta (Matosinhos) highlights the people who crossed her path and “opened horizons”, as well as the project she is proud to be part of: the FEP International Case Team (FICT).
