Learning expedition – Porto

December 2 - December 3


PRODUTECH, the Portuguese production technologies cluster, is an articulated network of manufacturing technology providers capable of responding to both competitiveness and sustainability challenges and to the overall manufacturing industry’s requirements with innovative, flexible, integrated and competitive solutions.

The objective of this GALACTICA learning expedition is to present interesting cross-sectoral innovations connecting advanced production technologies, textiles and aerospace entities.

On the first day, 2 visits to technological centres are previewed: CITEVE (Technological Centre for Textile & Clothing) and CENTI (Centre for Nanotechnologies and Smart Materials). In the afternoon we’ll take you to meet 2 or 3 advanced manufacturing companies.

On the second day you’ll be able to participate in EMAF, the biggest Portuguese fair to machines, equipment and services for industry. The programme finishes with an inspiring cross-sectoral fertilization workshop with active participation of the attendees.
