Portugal, like other EU member states, is investing massively in the green and digital transition to implement the European Green Deal. Norwegian businesses can take part in tenders under the Recovery and Resilience Funds in Portugal and elsewhere. In May, 18 Norwegian businesses joined an event in Lisbon on this funding and a matchmaking with Portuguese partners. 

By 2026, Portugal will invest 16,6 billion euro as part of its Recovery and Resilience Plan to implement the European Green Deal. Portugal's Recovery and Resilience Plan aims to boost the Portuguese economy as a response to the coronavirus pandemic and to implement the European Green Deal.

Norwegian businesses can cooperate with Portuguese entities in calls, tenders and projects in Portugal. The event outlined these opportunities and provided a matchmaking between Norwegian and Portuguese businesses.

The thematic areas for cooperation were business innovation, decarbonisation of industry, hydrogen and renewable energy, green mobility and industry 4.0.

See the upcoming tenders on the website for Portugal 2030.
