Developed locally but with global ambition, Smart Ocean will above all be a tool that will make it possible to respond to the Sustainable Development Goals
defined by the United Nations (SDG11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities
, SDG13 - Climate Action
and SDG14 - Life Below Water
As a result of the concerted efforts of 4 entities - Municipality of Peniche
, Politécnico de Leiria
, the year 2019 was marked by the constitution of the Association that will manage the future science and technology park and the submission of the project proposal to the CCDR-Center to obtain the necessary financing for the construction of the Smart Ocean building.
The year 2020 will mark the beginning of a new and decisive development phase of the Smart Ocean project. With greater visibility in terms of the actions to be developed, the Managing Association of Smart Ocean intends to establish a set of partnerships with national and international entities in order to create conditions to achieve its major strategic objectives and meet the goals set under SDG14 (Life Below Water).
