SPI – Sociedade Portuguesa de Inovação at ENRICH in LAC Consortium Meeting

Started as a European Commission funded project under the H2020 framework programme (CEBRABIC) back in 2017, the initiative started addressing Brazil, entitled ENRICH in Brazil (European Network of Research and Innovation Centres and Hubs), and set up as a Non-Profit Association in December 2019.

In 2021, the initiative was expanded to cover not only brazil, but also other 4 countries in Latin America: Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Uruguay, becoming ENRICH in LAC (https://lac.enrichcentres.eu/)

SPI – Sociedade Portuguesa de Inovação was represented in the latest consortium meeting of the project, which took place in Vienna, Austria between June 9th and June 10th through Sara Medina and Paola di Nunzio. It was a great opportunity to discuss the current status of ENRICH in LAC, its Work Packages and establish goals and plans to extend ENRICH Centers influence around the globe.

Many thanks to the Austrian Research Promotion Agency for hosting this meeting!
