Portugal was the guest country of the 6th edition of Transfiere. As such, the Portuguese R&D&i ecosystem took part in the different activity areas of the Forum (networking, institutional agenda, oficial events in the Forum, conference programme, among others).
Portugal is positioned at the forefront of different types of science, technology and Innovation. It has been recognized as one of the most attractive territories due to the synergies and facilities it offers. Portugal is now a “strong innovator”.
Portugal has made a giant leap to another division in terms of innovation and development. Despite overcoming budget problems, our Portuguese neighbor has become one of the countries with the highest improvement around us thanks to the efforts of its SMEs (the main driving force behind innovation). Their key has been the close collaboration and the strong alliances between the public and private sectors and a great financing effort by the authorities.
