Digital economy

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is key to the development of modern economies. This is an extremely relevant sector, not only due to the huge amount of information generated, stored, processed and transmitted, but also as a result of the large number of associated issues, particularly security problems.

The Lisboa city and metropolitan area represent attractive locations for the establishment of international ICT businesses, namely Internet, Media, Audio-visual and Software companies.

In order to attract and retain new companies and talent, as well as foster the creation of highly skilled jobs, the Municipality has been developing a series of projects, in collaboration with several partners, with a view to boosting the city’s attractiveness and competitiveness in the ICT sector.
