(Energy Transition in Portugal: how to value the technical and social innovation?), moderated by Jorge Vasconcelos, and which will gather policy-makers, companies and scientists to explore the mechanisms and options that Portugal can adopt so that the energy transition can be a competitiveness booster of the Portuguese economy.
