The Livestream, the pitches, the pictures. (Re)view the best moments of this closing session.


The HiTech Closing Session 2022, which marked the conclusion of the HiTech program, took place last Wednesday, July 13. The program's conclusion was one of HiSeedTech's most significant turning points in July, which was attended by more than 150 people online and 80 people in the Tivoli BBVA theater.

In this event, the nine participating teams - comprising 34 researchers from Portuguese R&D institutions – pitched a business case for a product (or service) concept generated from the technologies proposed by them to HiTech Program. Over 18 weeks, each team had access to training, mentoring, advising, and the help of our American Partners from Brown, NCSU, Rutgers.
