Fibrenamics and Sanjotec awarded with the 1st Prize at the EEPA
Fibrenamics, through TecMinho, and Sanjotec received the 1st national prize at the European Enterprise Promotion Awards (EEPA).
The MAISTec project, a consortium for the transfer of scientific and technological knowledge that aims to promote the competitiveness of the North Region, promoted by Sanjotec and developed in partnership between the University of Aveiro, ISQ and Fibrenamics, through TecMinho, won the 1st prize in the “Investment in entrepreneurial skills” category of the European Enterprise Promotion Awards.
This initiative of the European Commission, coordinated in Portugal by IAPMEI, recognized the contribution of this project to the specialization of the region Entre Douro and Vouga, with the use of scientific skills in the areas of production technologies, and materials, to promote the upgrade of the specialization sectors in the region, with a view to supplying niche markets that are more demanding in terms of technical specifications.
It's important to mention that the focus of this project was on areas that are in line with the region's specialization, such as: Production technologies; Advanced polymers, composites and materials; Molds; Materials; Energy; and Habitat.
