U.Porto Innovation partners with several organisations to implement ideas and projects related to its mission and goals.

These are the projects U. Porto Innovation is currently involved in:






European Institute of Innovation & Technology | A body of the European Union



DEEP INVENTHEI envisions that by 2030 a critical mass of highly educated young entrepreneurs and innovators will be contributing to the emergence of highly dynamic research and innovation ecosystems, favouring the creation or inshore of knowledge-intensive companies on deep tech technologies, developing new value-added products and services, and innovative business models in the manufacturing and health domains. At the same time, DEEP INVENTHEI will contribute to attracting and retaining talent in Europe, by training deep tech talents, increasing support for women innovators and supporting deep tech academic spin-offs and start-ups.  

DEEPINVENTHEI builds on the results of INVENTHEI, funded by the HEI Initiative pilot call. DEEP INVENTHEI will nurture the existing Business & Innovation Network (BIN@) to create an international network of regional innovation valleys, where the best talent works hand in hand with the best companies and where deep tech innovation thrives. This network of regional innovation valleys will be where disruptive solutions to address the most pressing societal challenges are developed and brought to the market, either through existing companies or deep tech academic spin-offs or start-ups.







Horizon 2020


EUGLOHRIA is a “Science with and for Society” project promoted by EUGLOH – European University Alliance for Global Health.

EUGLOHRIA aims to consolidate the Alliance's efforts and achievements towards establishing a European University around Global Health by broadening its scope to include the "Research and Innovation" dimension.

Building upon EUGLOH's accomplishments in education and training on Global Health, EUGLOHRIA will broadly expand EUGLOH's reach, incorporating cutting-edge research and situating the Alliance as a strategic partner within highly dynamic innovation ecosystems.
