This fall saw the fourth iteration of Spark Day, a national showcase of HP innovation and creativity organized by HP Brazil R&D.
Attended by some 200 HP employees and over fifty professionals and researchers from Brazil’s wider R&D ecosystem, the late September event featured keynote presentations, workshops, a poster session, and a demo fair. The aim was to share ideas and foster synergies across the many HP project teams that work under the HP Brazil R&D umbrella, says Alexis Cabeda, event co-organizer and program manager for external collaboration for HP R&D Brazil’s PMO (Project Management Office).
“Over the last four years, Spark Day has proven to be one of our most powerful tools for sharing the wide range of ideas generated by our R&D teams and for identifying opportunities for collaboration between different people and projects,” Cabeda notes. “Sometimes it’s important to just stop your daily work and talk with each other.”
