We have held several high profile international UTEN/IC2 events in conjunction with U. Porto and FEUP. We have been consistently impressed with the FEUP team and have consistently had a positive experience. FEUP has proven to be an excellent partner and co-host. It has been a distinct pleasure working with FEUP and we look forward to co-hosting more events in the future.

‘The logic of circular economy is another. It is about understanding that our economy lies within the limited boundaries of our planet. For this reason, the ideal must be to reduce the production of waste, and if this is not possible, close the cycle, i.e. find alternative ways to use the residues.’

Adilton Carneiro, CEO of SUPERA Parque and one of the key organisers of the event



‘The use of renewable energies was also thoroughly discussed, including the reservations pertaining to electrical cars, meaning that although their use itself is not polluting, the process of producing energy still has a strong impact on the environment in some countries, especially when using the non-renewable sources like is the case with coal-fired thermal electric power plants.’

Dalton Marques, Manager of Economic and Technological Development at SUPERA Parque



This shows clearly the importance of the work realised by SUPERA Parque and the importance of these people for the development of the entrepreneurship ecosystem of Ribeirão Preto and the country as a whole.’

Adilton Carneiro, CEO of SUPERA Parque, on attributing the prize to the three team members of SUPERA



‘Ribeirão Preto is prepared for this type of challenge and it is an honour that we can participate as protagonists in this discussion.’

Duarte Nogueira, mayor of Ribeirão Preto



‘It was an important event for showing how much our innovation ecosystem has consolidated in comparison to a former BIN@ event which took place in Ribeirão Preto in 2013.’

Eduardo Cicconi, Manager of New Business Activities at SUPERA Parque

Violeta Bulc (CEO of Vibacom Ltd, Sustainable Strategies and Innovation Ecosystems)


UPorto Rector’s speech (extract)

‘BIN@PORTO generated cooperation dynamics which in the near future can be translated into value added initiatives both for the academia and companies. In addition, BIN@PORTO also exposed a well-established international dimension, (…) i.e. the innovation process was addressed based on cross-border logic and with a purpose of boosting the international network of several partners (…)’

José Marques dos Santos (Rector of U.Porto between 2006 – 2014)

Adilton Carneiro (FIPASE)


‘Many thanks for your invitation to participate in BIN@PORTO and also for the kind accompany during the event. The participation has been a huge success to me to get in touch with some key people involved in Innovation & Strategy Consultation and also for the business of Green Pai Energy. Now it is up to me to explore the full potential of these contacts but without your suggestion to participate in BIN@PORTO this would not have been possible.’

Rajesh Pai (Director at Green Pai Energy Audit Ltd)


‘I just want to congratulate you for such excellent organization during the Oporto meeting, you really made a great impression on us. I believe that the idea of placing the stands within the university is certainly a promising one, because you bring consciousness on the importance of IP issues and tech transfer to the students. Additionally, I specially enjoyed the session on open innovation.’

Gustavo Fuster (Patent Attorney and attorney-at-law at Hoffmann Eitle S.L)


‘We would like to congratulate all the BIN@FEUP team for the realisation of this excellent event. It was, without a doubt, a first fundamental step in creating an annual event which allows interconnection of partnership networks in research and commerce inside the various areas of engineering.’
