Economy and Innovation
Boasting a privileged location, Lisboa and its metropolitan area benefit from the ideal conditions to developing a successful, sustainable blue economy.
Lisboa’s widely diversified, innovative, entrepreneurial ecosystem includes numerous R&D centres, universities, start-ups and spin-offs, mature companies, institutions and associations, which allow for the development of innovative ideas and structuring projects in the maritime sector.
Strategic documents “Lisboa, a Maritime Economy” and “Lisboa, Capital of the See” evidence the huge potential of the maritime sector. As such, this activity sector calls for a dedicated municipal policy, as specified in greater detail in the Major Plan Options for the City of Lisboa 2018/2021, particularly the Action Plan and the “Atlantic Capital” subchapter.
