Challenge

The Centre Region of Portugal has benefited from a considerable qualitative improvement in the last decades regarding the dynamization of the knowledge economy through the investment in physical and human resources in its various urban centers, the creation of reference infrastructures at national and international level, and Enabling teams that today possess a wealth of experience and know-how that are, in themselves, a competitive advantage of the territory itself.
