The NEM Portugal platform, mirror of the European initiative New European Media, aims to play a key role in the area of Interactive Content & Media and Creative Industries, functioning within the European ecosystem that will make Europe an Innovative Union. NEM Portugal follows a holistic approach, identifying the path to commercial exploration/ exploitation of research and providing strategic support for business opportunities and needs, mobilizing and linking innovation actors in Portugal in order to enable Portuguese companies and stakeholders to achieve a competitive advantage in European and global markets.
The TICE.PT cluster, with the support of ADDICT, originally proposed the creation of NEM Portugal. INESC TEC, as a member of both clusters, carried out the necessary tasks for the launch of NEM Portugal.
The main objective of the NEM Portugal platform is to contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the European NEM initiative:
"To promote the development and the introduction of new audiovisual and multimedia services as well as broadband applications for the benefit of citizens and businesses. The platform intends to have a significant impact on the European economy in the context of the Lisbon objectives, taking into account the renewed objectives as in the i2010 European Initiative. "
