Visitors at CITNM, together, exceed Portuguese GDP!
The future is today!
Therefore, and as it is our purpose, we reinforce our DNA: we want to prepare future generations in a school-company environment of excellence.
For that matter it is critical to bring the companies to us. That's what we've been doing since we started.
Although it is still in its first year of activity, the Centre for Innovation and Technology N. Mahalingam, (CITNM) has attracted the interest of multiple businesses and university organizations, public, private and associative entities.
In 2016, entities from more than a dozen countries, including Spain, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Sweden, India, Brazil and the United States visited and/or expressed interest for CITNM.
On the latest months of the year, CITNM was honored to receive the visit from universities and research centers from various countries, as well as OEMs and automotive suppliers (TIER 1 and TIER 2) and other areas such as chemistry, materials, consultancy and foundry, for example.
Out of curiosity, we mention that only the value of sales from companies that visited the CITNM in its first year, from the automotive sector chain, added up, far exceeds the Portuguese GDP.
