THE 2022 EVENT
With the grand purpose of stimulating research and innovation across the Atlantic, the AIR Centre, in partnership with the Science and Technology Park – Terinov of Terceira Island and the Municipality of Angra do Heroísmo, bring you the “Atlantic Innovation Week: Where policy, science, technology and industry construct a healthier planet”.
The global challenges that we face today, show that even small changes on natural ecosystems, either on Ocean or Land, will have a great impact on our everyday lives. Therefore, it is pressing to find short and long-term solutions to the volatile, uncertain, complex, and challenging world we live in and the major global challenges that we can no longer ignore.
The Atlantic Innovation Week brings together policy, science, technology and industry, and multi-level stakeholders will have the opportunity to address distinct issues. By connecting international governments to regional businesses, new international projects (that join entities working in ultra-peripheral regions and international partners) will be explored, addressing the potential of venture capital and public funding to the sectors that connect Space and Oceans, among others.
The island of Terceira in Azores, a location of unique natural magnificence in the blue vastness of the Atlantic Ocean, provides the perfect environment to explore bold new ideas and solutions which can then be implemented at a global level. Terceira island will function as a “living lab” where the collective minds of government representatives, companies (large, SMEs and start-ups), key selected research organizations and outstanding individuals will come together to address and debate innovative solutions for some of humankind’s biggest challenges, looking for resilient actions that can contribute to a brighter future for the next generations.
