A successful takeoff of the Blue Bootcamps series

Lisbon Blue Bootcamp - the first of the 4helix+ series - was held at the locality of Ericeira (PT) on 7-8 February. It gathered 44 participants from Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece and Albania.

The Bootcamp started off with very practical interactive parallel sessions, one on Blue Growth with Luís Fé de Pinho, and the other on 4helix+ open innovation methodologies with Fernando Gaspar.Pitch sessions followed, presented both by SMEs and Knowledge Providers, as well as a presentation about funding opportunities, held by the Portugal Ventures company.

Networking of participants was ensured through a related specific session that was further enriched by informal networking at coffee breaks and local culinary moments, largely appreciated by the attendees.

Lisbon 4helix+ Blue Bootcamp enjoyed the support of the Municipality of Mafra and in particular of its Deputy Mayor, Mr. Joaquim Sardinha, who joined the Bootcamp.
