The University of Debrecen visits Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS on an exploratory trip for new research partners



Last week, on the 14th of December, Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS (FhP-AICOS) hosted a group of researchers and Heads of Departments from the University of Debrecen looking to extend their pool of partners in research, technology transfer, and entrepreneurship activities.

Being one of the most prominent universities in Hungary and an active participant in the R&D value chain, the University of Debrecen has a rich research program in areas such as health, medicine, agriculture, and the food industry, that it is looking to leverage by creating new connections and cooperation opportunities.

As a research center, FhP-AICOS values cooperation as a much-needed resource for better technological solutions and scientific advancement, and that is why it was more than happy to welcome the committee from the University of Debrecen in the FhP-AICOS Porto office.

During the visit, a short presentation about Fraunhofer Portugal and the main innovation topics of its two research centers – AICOS and AWAM -, highlighted the proximity and potential for closer cooperation between the two institutions.
