Carnegie Mellon University will sign a cooperation agreement with the Government of Portugal to renew the CMU Portugal Program on February 15th, 2018 in Matosinhos, Portugal. This public signing ceremony will initiate Phase III of the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program, a new 10-year commitment to launch information and communications technology (ICT) ventures and establish industrial partnerships through research. For the last decade, CMU has partnered with Portuguese universities and research institutions to pursue high-caliber research which has made a significant impact on the scientific culture and the entrepreneurial capability of the ICT sector in Portugal. The renewed Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program will build on Carnegie Mellon’s experience as a dynamic economic engine in the Pittsburgh region and foster industry-science relationships as agents of change for social and economic impact. CMU Interim President Farnam Jahanian will attend the ceremony along with senior Portuguese government officials and top-ranking academic leaders.
