Behind the scenes: Meet our Code4SP consortium! Issue #12

What’s your name and job title?

My name is João Gonçalves and I work as a Project Manager.

Tell us a few words about your background:

I have a degree in History, obtained at the University of Porto. I have been working with European projects for over 5 years.

What organisation do you work for?


What does your organisation do?

CEPROF is an SME specifically for the creation of the Vocational School of Espinho. Since ESPE is a school, it is legally recognised as an “institution of public interest” and the unique business of CEPROF is to own, manage and legally represent ESPE. The international department, which is my workplace, works towards the development of international projects in order to enlarge the school’s scope and knowledge.

What is your role in the Code4SP project? What are you currently working on?

CEPROF has joined this project as an ICT expert and a knowledge provider on Coding, especially in the area of coding for automation. Furthermore, CEPROF is providing the perspective of a school that is complementary to the profile of the other IT-knowledge providers of this partnership, which will be relevant for the development of the curricula and for the involvement of the local communities.

Currently, I am working on the development of the project’s Work Package 5.

Why is being part of the Code4SP project important to you?

Being involved in a project with such noble goals is truly fulfilling. Today's global migration trends highlight the growing desire for a better life, particularly in EU nations. This project stands as a valuable resource in enhancing the quality of life for these communities.

How do you like to spend your free time?

Reading and retro video gaming.
