About Portugal Agora:
The "Portugal Now" project aims to create a vision, broken down into strategic models for the country, for the coming decades. This will be achieved through a plural space for discussion, during a limited period, with the aim of determining where convergences are possible, which will materialize in priorities in which Portugal can develop. The project has strategic dimensions - Attractiveness, Knowledge, Entrepreneurship e Resilience - for Portugal and wants to link them to execution and action.
