Instituto Pedro Nunes, through its Department of Knowledge Valorisation and Innovation, carried out a consulting activity with the Lithuanian Energy Institute
, in Kaunas, Lithuania, between 15 and 20 January. The IPN delegation was composed by Jorge Pimenta, José Ricardo Aguilar and José Manuel Rodrigues, being this activity the continuation of work previously developed with this institution, which took place in November 2021 and May 2022, the latter hosting a project management team of the Lithuanian institution with the IPN.
With this collaboration that has been developed, the Lithuanian Energy Institute intends to deepen and implement the good practices developed by IPN, namely those related to the promotion and evaluation of technologies, intellectual property and creation of spin-off companies.
