Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship
CITE was created to consolidate INESC TEC’s significant investments and experience in the development of internal processes and tools to manage R&D results, and to organise the resulting knowledge and competences.
At CITE we have a specific expertise in Innovation and Technology Management & Policy and Technology Entrepreneurship. The activities held by our centre promote the development of conceptual frameworks, methodologies and tools used both in advanced consulting and executive training programs for private and public organisations.
