Alumni Económicas has pleasure in inviting you to participate in a webinar on ‘Technology and Innovation in the Future of Portugal’, with guest speakers Vanda de Jesus, Joana Mendonça, Sofia Marta, Manuel Mira Godinho, and Henrique Monteiro. The event will take place on Thursday, 25th of November, at 19.00.
Almost two years after the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, technology and the digital transition have proved to be a valuable allies for societies in that they have enabled millions around the world to stay connected with each other and with their organisations, exchanging information and working together and have led to the rapid adaption of the economy. Today we live in a more digital world and both technology and innovation will continue to play a decisive role for new ways of working over the coming years. But what can we expect from the contribution of the digital transition to the future of Portugal? Is our labour market prepared to deal with successive waves of technological innovation? Are our companies and universities fully aware of the role of technology in preparing our future? How does Portugal compare with other more developed economies in the field of technology and digital transition and what lessons can be learned to improve our growth?
These are some of the issues that will be discussed during the next webinar that has been organised by Alumni Económicas.
