The Aixovall Vocational Training Centre held on Tuesday, December 11th, the third edition’s finale of the Tàndem project, organized by Actua.

The winning team presented Free Wifi, chosen by the jury as the best solution in response of the challenge posed by Andorra Telecom.
In this third edition, 72 students participated, supervised by 12 teachers, and working on the following challenges: Andorra Telecom asked students to work on initiatives to innovate in the prepaid mobile telephony offer in order to reach more customers. (This happened to be the winning project); VallmedicVision wanted ideas to raise awareness among the Andorran population to avoid the abusive use of digital screens in order to reduce the incidence of myopia; and Gamma Management wanted to improve the relationship of this human resources company with its clients (companies and candidates).
