The project LinkMeUp - 1000 ideas, Support System for the Co-creation of Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship, is a project that brings together 13 Portuguese polytechnic institutes to promote entrepreneurship by training young students and/or entrepreneurs with a view to increasing the quality of employment and the creation of innovative companies.

Following the presentations that took place last December 16, the jury chaired by Rafael Pedrosa (responsible for Startup Porto) and with the participation of Jorge Portugal (General Director of COTEC) and Maria do Céu Boulhosa (Entrepreneurship and Innovation in IAPMEI), elected the winning project, Learning Your Way, carried out in co-creation with CINDOR.

This project will represent the P.PORTO in the national phase of the competition that will take place in June 2023, in Barcelos. The jury also highlighted the quality of several of the projects presented, in a clear sign of the commitment of the teams and the effective involvement of the participating companies: Toyota Caetano - KINTO PORTUGAL, S.A., GISLOTICA- Projeto e Fabrico de Sistemas Mecânicos Lda, Luís Simões, S.A., ParaVida Sport, Winning, Lda, among others. All nine multidisciplinary teams are composed by students and teachers from all the schools of P.PORTO.

The nine projects will now have the possibility to develop their proofs of concept/conceptual models, under an internal program to be launched during January by PORTIC.
