Taguspark, the largest science and technology park in Portugal, is preparing to receive the new research hub from Altice Labs. The investment was made official on 5 March as part of the company’s fourth anniversary celebrations.
For this purpose, a memorandum was signed between the Municipality of Oeiras and Altice Labs in order to establish initiatives that contribute to the development of competitiveness, within the scope of the new development cycle of the municipality.
After the hubs of Madeira, Viseu, Olhão and the Azores, Oeiras thus becomes the fifth location – outside Aveiro – chosen by Altice Labs for the installation of its new research and development centre. This hub will help produce technology for 60 countries.
The mayor of Oeiras City Council, Isaltino Morais, explained at the time: “This expansion of the Altice group to Oeiras follows our strategy of having the centre of knowledge, technology and research in our municipality”.
Alcino Lavrador, Director-General of Altice Labs, said: “It is with great satisfaction that we open yet another Altice Labs hub in Portugal, this time in Oeiras. The digital transformation process means that we are always innovating and our effort and commitment must be dedicated to bringing more and better services to the Portuguese population. In this sense, and like the other hubs around our country, this laboratory will have research, innovation, development and export of cutting-edge technology”.
With the opening of this new research hub, Oeiras reinforces its position as a national reference municipality in attracting talent and exporting innovation and technology.
