Ciência 2020: CMU Portugal at the annual Science and Technology Summit in Portugal

The CMU Portugal Program will host on November 4th  the session “CMU Portugal – defining new frontiers in Technology within the health sector.”

In 2020, 12 new ICT projects are starting under the scope of the CMU Portugal Program. For the first time, 10 of these research projects are led by Portuguese companies and carried out in partnership between companies and non-corporate entities of the R&D System and research groups at Carnegie Mellon, also representing a very significant pubic and private financial commitment. Research topics span from Data Science and Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Design and Engineering applied to social problems, forest fire-prevention, data management, mobility, and language technologies.

In this session, we will focus our discussion on three (3) projects addressing health sectors’ issues, sharing the opportunities, challenges, and impacts on this field that brings together researchers from diverse fields of knowledge.
