In pursuit, of promoting and developing Porto as a global technological hub, the technology sector has already created over 22,000 qualified jobs in the city. The 22,000 new qualified jobs since 2015 coincide with the creation of InvestPorto by the municipality.

"The city of Porto is now recognized as an important technological center in the European context. Its ability to attract companies, directly or indirectly, and to grow those that are already here, is unquestionable," said Ricardo Valente.


Programming, cloud and infrastructure, cybersecurity, modern web, and artificial intelligence are the themes that mark the eighth edition of Porto Tech Hub. The initiative includes 40 talks and 20 workshops.
