In the first regional conference of the IPBN to take place in Porto Wednesday October 25 at the EDP Auditorium of the Porto Business School, we showed the advances and the lead the Port City of Matosinhos is taking in the Maritime world and the synergies and potential of greater partnerships that exist with Ireland.
We highlighted the latest development of knowledge and innovation related to the Ocean and Marine sciences with the CiiMAR, an interdisciplinary centre for marine & environmental research, based in Matosinhos.
We showed the synergies which exist between Portugal and Ireland in enabling the successful harnessing of offshore wind energy and how we can develop partnerships between the two countries, which we, the IPBN, will be pushing for.
We highlighted the position and aspiration of the Ports of Leixões, Viana do Castelo and the Douro Navigable Route in the overall Maritime Transportation industry in Portugal and in the EU and Global competition.
Thank you again to all our Guest Speakers and Partners who made the conference possible: CM de Matosinhos, the Porto Business School, CiiMAR and all our Executive partners PwC Portugal, Ardanis, Skanstec Engeneering, Konceptness, Brookes Property Group, The Portugal News and the Vellozo Ferreira law firm.
