Dear Sandra,
I have suggestion regarding universities, we should prepare scoped projects and 
ideas which could be done as students graduation projects. in this case, 
students will have the chance to work on real projects and we can develop our

Assunto: OWASP Academies.
Dear all,
I have been asked by the OWASP Board to start off the process of designing and 
building a new concept that will be closely linked to the training activities 
promoted by OWASP and that intends to take this area one step further.
The idea is to create what we will call OWASP Academies –  

The OWASP Academies will be a frame under which work should be done with 
Universities, Polytechnic Institutes, IT Schools and other Academic institutions 
with a view to establish solid relationships and develop with these organisms 
ways to collaborate and participate in the design of courses focused on web 
application security.
OWASP has the knowledge and critical mass to give an invaluable input to any 
Academy focusing on this area – both by contributing with its expertise in the 
definition of curricula and course contents that explore and study the web 
security field and by making available to the Academy its pool of interested and 
willing security experts as trainers. 

As mentioned above, this concept is just at its beginning and we do not have, as 
of yet, a clear methodology or set of rules to implement what hopefully will be 
a new area of work for OWASP. What is clear, however, is that to make this 
happen we will need your input and ideas, your energy and your initiative. 
Moreover, as we are planning to include this discussion in one of the Working 
Sessions to be held in the upcoming OWASP Summit 2011, this would be the perfect 
timing to gather your input and contributions.
Being so, if you have contacts within your local academic communities and would 
like to be involved in the design and development of this  concept, please do 
get back to me with your thoughts!
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
