The Dom Cabral Foundation (FDC) has created a laboratory known as the Tree Lab, to provide executives and business leaders with access to technological solutions and experimentation activities involving the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and blockchain.

The Tree Lab, located at FDC's Aloysio Faria campus in Minas Gerais, is a breeding and innovation environment designed in partnership with IBM and Synergy, a company that develops RFID and IoT solutions. Synergy will donate devices to the lab to demonstrate IoT-focused applications.

The laboratory is intended for business-school research into the future of education and the challenges of the corporate world. According to information obtained in various market segments, in order to deal with the current volatile and challenging environment and build the skills of future leaders, educational solutions must be collaborative and interconnected. In addition, they need to develop intelligence that can cultivate curiosity and innovation.

"FDC believes that education is the only sustainable way out for more conscientious citizens, more responsible leaders and organizations, and a more prosperous business environment," says Antonio Batista da Silva Jr., FDC's executive president. "Our laboratory will enable a learning journey to foster the construction of the skills and competencies that can transform the world."
