  • mobility and future cities
  • space-oceans-earth: sustainability interactions.

Why Portugal and the Global Innovation Summit

This GBIP will include a visit to Portugal and attendance at the EUREKA Global Innovation Summit 2022 held in Estoril. It builds on the UK’s 35 years of collaborative innovation with Portugal through the EUREKA initiative, with over 600 UK and 200 Portuguese research projects collectively worth over €1.3B supported in that time. Portugal’s 3 per cent of GDP spend on R&D, and the commitment to a 45% to 55% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and Net Zero by 2050 makes the country a key partner. The Global Innovation Summit 2022 offers a unique possibility for selected businesses to network, exchange ideas, and develop business opportunities with businesses and other organisations from Portugal as well as over 45 other countries which are part of the EUREKA network.
