The Nonagon Association – Science and Technology Park of São Miguel received a visit, today, by the representatives of the Board of ANI – National Innovation Agency.
The President of the Board of Directors of the Nonagon Association, Teresa Ferreira, received João Borga, member of the Board of Directors of ANI, and Diogo Araújo, Director of Capacity Building of the National Innovation System ANI, who were accompanied by the Regional Director of Science and Technology, Flávio Tiago and by the Head of the Division of Science, Technology and Innovation of the Regional Government of the Azores, Fábio Vieira.
ANI’s mission is to catalyze and boost innovation in Portugal, as well as to promote collaboration between entities of the Scientific and Technological System and the business environment, so it is crucial for NONAGON, which operates based on the same goals, to strengthen this contact to increase the Azorean business competitiveness.
