message from the president of seapower

Professor Luís Simões da Silva

The economy of the sea or blue economy has been presented as a strategic opportunity for Portugal, mainly due to the huge Portuguese continental shelf in the Atlantic Ocean. SEAPOWER was created precisely to provide an effective response to this challenge, by bringing together entities from a scientific system and companies operating in the sector of the economy of the sea. The installation of SEAPOWER in Figueira da Foz aims to maximize synergies with the Port and Ocean Infrastructures to increase the competitiveness of the sector, helping the effective transfer of knowledge generated in research institutions to the economy.
