Establish a new innovation centre based in Lisbon to host start-up companies focused on developing new and sustainable solutions for new uses of the sea, based on marine bioresources and marine biotechnology. The Lisbon Innovation Centre will provide support in areas like training, management, intellectual property and will promote the link between the scientific area and companies. This Program wishes to attract also international start-ups, creating an ecosystem of cross-fertilization.
