WHAT IS THE IN3+ AWARD?
Since 2016, the Portuguese Mint and Official Printing Office (INCM) – awards the best ideas and projects of its innovation network, currently integrating the main universities and research centers, namely in the areas of production and materials technologies, nanotechnology, ICT, robotics and automation, with the contribution of hundreds of national and international researchers.
After two editions in which six projects have been recognised, in areas such as Industry 4.0, New Materials or New Business Models, which are already under development, it now acquires a new identity, with a focus on the future: IN3+. + INNOVATION. + INVESTIGATION. + INCM.
After a few months, gradually, Portugal is returning to a certain normality, longed for, leaving behind an unprecedented global public health crisis and preparing for a new future and for a long path ahead.
This crisis comes, once again, to draw attention to the enormous relevance of the work of the scientific community, researchers, innovators, creators. In their hands is the discovery of a definitive solution to fight a virus that has turned the world we knew inside out.
We, too, at INCM absolutely have to innovate, to continue what has been suspended over time. Due to our nature and our products, we have an increased responsibility towards society. That is why we are working and resuming the IN3+ Award, ONE MILLION FOR INNOVATION. Applications are open. A new future can begin with your ideas.
By rewarding the winning ideas through realization and incorporation into its offering, INCM bridges the gap between academic research and the industrial and business context.
