I would like to thank you and all members of your team for organizing BIN@Porto event and helping us to get there. It was a very positive experience for our team – we managed to collect a lot of feedback and meet new people.
Pavel Panasjuk, Air Energy – Dynamic Air Cooling Technology
Thank you so much for great BIN@PORTO experience. We returned to Poland with lots of new ideas and plenty of potential partners for further cooperation between our scientists and university with BIN participants. I hope you feel lots of satisfaction after so excellently organized and realised event.
Marcin Gorski (Director of Project Management Center, Silesian University of Technology)
I wish to congratulate you for the excellence, quality and realisation of BIN@PORTO 2018 which surely compensated all the efforts the organisation of it required. Extensive congratulations for the whole organisation team of the event.
Fernando Roseira (Unidade de Engenharia, Mota-Engil, SGPS, S.A)
Our participation with a booth at the Technology Showroom & Business Showcase of BIN@PORTO 2015 was very productive. In fact, in terms of business outcomes, it was one of the most productive events we ever participated.
Eduardo Mendes (Co-founder and Director of R&D at Connect Robotics)
I simply wanted to express my sincerest gratitude for the invitation – it has been quite an experience and a wonderful opportunity. I sincerely believe that you are both remarkable and dynamic people with aligned goals, and you probably do not realize that your efforts have made a big difference for many people – keep it up.
Michael Tadros (Senior Manager – Botin Foundation)
We were very well received by the organisers of the event and the vast majority of themes covered also met our expectations. In terms of the relevance of discussions and engagement of the people, we could witness the gravity with which the themes of innovation and entrepreneurship were handled by the event organising entities. Congratulations for the event!
Guilherme Luis Gutjahr (Co-founder & Partner na Gutjahr & Schio e na Fidúcia Consultoria)
It was my first time to participate in BIN@BRAZIL and I stayed very satisfied. I left with updated information about the state of innovation as well as contact points at the national level. Would recommend this event to my colleagues. Thank you for enabling my participation.
Juliana Miotto (Senior Scientist Global R&D Feminine Care at Johnson & Johnson)
The combination of the Latin American’s (Brazilian, Chilean, and Argentinean) collective consciousness in relation to European (especially Portuguese, British and Swedish, and Slovenian), has opened up new possibilities for even more profound understanding of the conditions, space, tools and opportunities related to innovation, innovation ecosystems and mass participation.
Violeta Bulc (present EU Commissioner for Transport, former CEO of Vibacom Ltd, Sustainable Strategies and Innovation Ecosystems)
Extract of the UPorto’s Rector speech:
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)
Thank you once more for all the collaboration with Portic, thanks to which the internationalisation results of the Portuguese technology companies have been leveraged, and also for the organisation of BIN@PORTO 2012 which was a success.
Pedro Castro Henriques (CEO Strongstep; DPO; Speaker; Lecturer FEUP; ITSMF Board; CMU Portugal Alumni)
Firstly, I would like to thank for the warm welcome received in Porto and congratulate for the event’s success. During this week we were there, I stayed impressed about the engagement and initiatives of all of you in the Network, the creation of spin-off companies, technology-based incubators and institutions around university etc.
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.
