Body Interact wins one of the 5 international WSA best “Learning & Education” products in 2018

2018’s edition of the World Summit Awards (WSA) has 40 Winners from 26 countries, selected across over 400 nominations from 104 United Nations member states.

Body Interact is developed by Take The Wind, whose team is extremely proud to be awarded with one of the five WSA international 2018 prizes in the category “Learning & Education” (after winning the national WSA 2018 prize for the same category). This recognition shows that Portugal’s innovation stands out among the best in the world, through the use of digital technologies that have a real impact on society.

The WSA winners 2018 will present their innovations and receive their awards at the WSA Global Congress in Cascais, Portugal (March 11-13, 2019). The agenda of the WSA Congress will be a compilation of interaction and inspiration, assembling workshops, business blind-dates and inspiring keynotes, bringing together the global and multi-stakeholder network of WSA. The Global Champions for each category will be announced during this event. Fingers crossed for Body Interact!

Take The Wind’s CEO Pedro Pinto says “It is a great honor to be recognized as one of the winners in the “Learning & Education” category. We truly believe that Body Interact is making a difference worldwide, accelerating medical and nursing education towards excellence. We feel that our work makes sense when we see that it contributes to saving lives in 4 continents.”

WSA Chairman Peter A. Bruck states “Today we are living in a completely different environment – through the mobile revolution, through the emergence of the algorithmic age – data has become a capital as much as labor, land money and machinery. Hunting for the next unicorn and better, faster, bigger technology foster the digital divide, instead of mending it. Hence, it is more important than ever to evaluate what is excellent content that really offers solutions and impact. Qualitative, local content has become the key and permanent issue. WSA presents innovation that uses ICT for social connectivity. To connect for impact.”
