In the 14th of June we have received the official visit of the Portuguese Secretary of State for Communications, Mr. Alberto Souto de Miranda, who was given a detailed presentation of the project, followed by a press conference with the Mayor of the City of Aveiro José Ribau Esteves. This interest of the Portuguese government in Aveiro STEAM City leverages the responsibility of the project’s partners and the relevance of the project´s outcomes and subsequent impact in the socio-economic landscape of the region.
In parallel, Aveiro STEAM City team visited the city of Dublin and the Smart Dublin headquarters on the 19th of June.
This visit has presented itself has a great opportunity to help us define our local strategy within Aveiro STEAM City project and its activities, with a clear belief that we can always look at Dublin´s experience as an excellent example of good practices.
All project partners were represented in this benchmarking visit and we would must express our gratitude to Jamie Cudden, Michael Guerin and his team for being great hosts and for the involvement and careful attention in the preparation of the agenda.
