The Center (CTIE) builds upon the deep and broad School faculty expertise in the domains of innovation, technology management, and entrepreneurship to answer the high level of interest from students, corporations, the entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem and the society at large.
The Center (CTIE) activities are built around three pillars in the area of Technological Innovation & Entrepreneurship:
- Excellence in research through the program of faculty fellowships, research papers publications and academic conferences. The CTIE promotes the visibility of its members’ research in Portugal and internationally.
- Leadership in education for undergraduates, graduates and executive education. The Center fosters innovative teaching methods and contents.
- Dissemination of academic knowledge to the society at large through the institutional communication (trade-related magazines, books, articles, etc...) and events (conferences that brings together scholars and practitioners with students).
Ultimately, the CTIE is a link between the academic world (students, scholars…) and the vibrant entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem (national and international).
The CTIE is supported by the Patrick and Lina Drahi Foundation.
