Event on Norwegian Business Participation in Portugal's Implementation of the EU Green Deal
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.
Recording of the Presentations
The event started with presentations of the funding under Portugal's Recovery and Resilience Plan. It was followed by a matchmaking and a networking reception hosted by the Norwegian Embassy in Lisbon.
