NORTEXCEL is a not for profit association under the Portuguese law created in November 2015 to host the new Centre of Excellence on medical technologies in the Norte region of Portugal.
The centre of excellence proposes a singular model as an ‘innovation company’ (inspired by our international partner Joanneum Research), with a key role in transferring technology and know-how in Norte region. The new centre will act as an interface institution between the scientific community, business fabric, industry, entrepreneurship, start-up communities and public sector in order to build synergies and bridges of cooperation and contribute to the articulation and coordination of research activities efforts and, thus, increase the competitiveness and business potential of regional actors.
