Innovation, environment and sustainability "arm in arm" with the Engineer

On 27 and 28 October, the Order of Engineers invited all members and interested parties to participate in the XXII National Congress of the Order of Engineers, under the theme "Engineering and Future Challenges".

This year's digital edition aimed to respond to the need for innovation, leveraging digitalisation and artificial intelligence in the areas of Engineering. To this end, serious and reasoned debates were delivered, in the form of three lectures and eight technical sessions, which "touched" on the main exercises and on the role of Engineers in the daily challenges in the areas of Environment, Territorial Cohesion, Digital Transition and Economic Recovery of the Country.

The congress programme, carefully structured by the Organising Committee and the Technical Coordination, was attended by more than 70 nationally renowned speakers. The opening message of the meeting was delivered by His Excellency the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, and the closing message of the 3 days of debate was delivered by the Prime Minister of Portugal, António Costa.
