The UPorto, the UPTEC and some of its incubated companies held a mission to Brazil in May 2011 to promote partnerships for R&D and Innovation. Meetings were held with companies, universities and S&T parks in the states of São Paulo and Santa Catarina. As a result of this initiative, and apart from the obvious positive outcomes for the University of Porto as a whole, some Portuguese companies additionally closed new trade agreements with Brazilian institutions with one such company opening a subsidiary in Brazil, where currently more than 60 people work.
