    With the participation on H2020, FP, and Interreg projects we end up creating knowledge in the 3 main priorities of RIS3 Azores, which are:

    • Tourism: Application of ICTs tourism, niche tourist services (Clustering – Interreg Project)
    • Agriculture: Livestock and agroindustry. Diversification and sustainability of production systems. differentiation and value added of product (Clustering – Interreg Project)
    • Fishing and the sea: Ocean knowledge, added value of fish products (Smartblue – Interreg Project)
