Monday, November 26, 2018 - 12:47

Within the celebrations of the 600 years of the discovery of Madeira and Porto Santo Islands, a Congress was held at the end of last week under the theme: CONTRIBUTION OF THE PORTUGUESE EXPANSION TO THE WORLD ECONOMY.

Professor Nuno Fernandes, Dean of the Católica Lisbon School of Business & Economics, was one of the distinguished speakers who, by invitation from the Regional Government, went to Madeira for this event. As part of a panel on the globalization of scientific knowledge, Nuno Fernandes talked about knowledge and training as competitiveness pillars.

Globalization, together with technological innovations and the emergence of new global powers, are increasingly putting at stake traditional business models. Following this global revolution, business competitiveness is measured in a global context. The consequences of knowledge (or lack thereof) and training for business competitiveness, and in particular for Portugal, were the main focus of this presentation.
