The Algarve Tech Hub is a strong Tech Ecosystem that aims to promote and grow the Algarve region as a global technological hub for technology-focused companies and individuals, identify talents and attract international stakeholders into the region, namely strategic investors and the digital nomad community.
This ecosystem has gathered speed as companies, local council, central government and the university begin to target the same goals. Added to which are the technological fervour sweeping the country, specifically as regards the organisation of events on an international scale, such as Web Summit, and the various fiscal benefits and public and European investments available to support both companies and technological development.
Above all, the goal is to aggregate and consolidate know-how in specific technological areas, the aim being to create brain power that will allow projects with a real chance of being winners on the international scene to be designed and developed. It is vital, therefore, that the Algarve Tech Hub’s ecosystem brings together strong stakeholders, including Incubators, accelerators, academies, mentor-pools, know-how centres, nearshoring and outsourcing service centres.
Algarve STP – Parque de Ciência e Tecnologia do Algarve (ASTP) is the driving force behind the ecosystem and is supported in its work by the University of Algarve and a set of public and private entities.
The ASTP’s primary mission is to promote the transfer of R&D knowledge on the economic circuits through innovative companies, and to foster the creation of a microclimate with high educational and innovative standards that easily generate cross-fertilisation between entrepreneurs targeting innovation, such as the goal of encouraging regional growth through smart specialisation areas (by EU definition).
The Algarve Evolution has been one of the main drivers of the Algarve Tech ecosystem. It’s a non-profit association of tech companies that aims to bring together local stakeholders and add value to the tech companies and talents based in the Algarve in order to promote and encourage the technological growth of the region.
