Portugal eHealth Summit returns to Lisbon with 45 startups, 200 speakers


The second edition of the Portugal eHealth Summit takes place March 20 — 23 at the Altice Arena and at the PT Meeting Center in Lisbon.

The biggest event for the digital transformation in healthcare ever held in Portugal returns to Lisbon next week and invites health professionals and startups to participate in the event that aims to promote best practices in the eHealth area.

The Portugal eHealth Summit is promoted by the Ministry of Health through SPMS, EPE, and SNS.

In 2017, it was the largest initiative on digital transformation in the health sector in the country.

Last year, the Portugal eHealth Summit had 10,000 participants and 6,000 watching the live stream.

Over the three days, the meeting bet on a dynamic model, with continuous and parallel sessions, totaling three keynotes, 26 presentations and 60 debates centered on the various eHealth segments.

Je déteste les gens débordés !  😤


J’ai pas le temps, je suis charrette, trop de trucs à faire…. c’est des choses qu’on entend à longueur de journée. Le problème avec les gens débordés, c’est que non seulement ils sont rarement plus performants que les autres mais qu’en plus, ils le font tellement savoir que ça cache quelque chose.

The €55M Portugal Social Innovation Fund is ‘paradigm changing’

The €55M Portugal Social Innovation Fund is ‘paradigm changing’


Portugal’s Council of Ministers approves €55 million for the creation of a “paradigm changing” Social Innovation Fund to help finance startups and entrepreneurs.

The Social Innovation Fund (FIS) will finance initiatives of entrepreneurship and social innovation, within the framework of the Portugal Social Innovation Initiative.

Slated to be available in the third quarter of 2018, the FIS will receive €55 million of funds from both the European Social Fund and the State Budget, with only 15% coming out of the State Budget.

The Portugal Social Innovation Fund will operate in two areas, debt and equity.

The debt side will support guarantees for loans that “will allow more favorable financing conditions” for organizations that apply, according to Alameida.

The equity part is intended for capital and quasi-equity co-investment of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in conjunction with private investors.

Filipe Almeida, president of Portugal Inovação Social, told Diário de Notícias that this is a pioneering fund, since in Europe there are no similar ones guaranteed by the European Social Fund, and that it will “change the paradigm of social projects.”

Almeida went on to say that the FIS will be the only financial instrument available to the social economy that “supports projects through repayable grants” developed by organizations that already have potential for growth and internationalization.

The Portugal Social Innovation Fund fulfills three financing programs of the Portugal Social Innovation Initiative, which are already available and are designed for projects that have a greater maturity, growth potential and internationalization and financial sustainability.

The three financing programs of the Portugal Social Innovation Initiative include:

  • Training for Social Investment – which aims to support organizations internally, in training or other skills, to improve their level of response to social problems.
  • Impact Partnerships – which has already closed a competition with 35 ongoing projects, in an investment of 10 million euros, seven of which are from Portugal 2020.
  • Social Impact Bonds – which aim to finance projects with measurable social results.

The FIS is one of the four financial instruments available under the Portugal 2020 program and integrated in the Portugal Social Innovation Initiative.

The Portugal 2020 Partnership Agreement set out the background for a general, multiannual budget for research and innovation policy, encompassing national and European funding sources.

Portugal 2020 encompasses four thematic Operational Programmes (Competitiveness and Internationalisation; Social Inclusion and Employment; Human Capital; Resource Efficiency and Sustainability) and seven regional Operational Programmes (OPs).

The projects financed by the Portugal Social Innovation Fund will be Initiatives of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (IIES), which present innovative responses to social problems, as opposed to traditional answers.

These include products and services that stand out for their potential social impact and for their  financial sustainability.

The projects to be submitted by the companies will be validated by the Portugal Social Innovation Initiative.

Claranet inaugurates €1M refurbished cybersecurity hub in Carnaxide


Today, highly-accredited cloud hosting company Claranet inaugurates a cybersecurity hub in Carnaxide after investing €1 million in the tech center project.

Claranet unveils its newly refurbished cybersecurity hub including a new Security Operations Center (SOC) in Carnaxide, which will provide a more complete, integrated and differentiated monitoring to its customers.

This new SOC is the result of an investment of €600K (excluding Human Resources) and will have a team of 16 employees.

The refurbishment of the cybersecurity hub – a project in which Claranet invested €1 million – follows the 2017 acquisition of ITEN Solutions, the largest M&E operation in Portugal in the Information Technology area.

“Cybersecurity is a key component of Claranet’s offering, which complements our portfolio of IT on premises services in an external Datacenter or public cloud,” said António Miguel Ferreira, Managing Director at Claranet Portugal.

“We believe that we are the best-positioned service provider in Portugal to support our customers in the transition to more efficient IT management models, given our focus on providing Datacenter and Cloud services since 2005, areas in which which Gartner has considered us as European leaders for five consecutive years, leveraging our strong presence in the most traditional on-premises IT, as a result of the acquisition of the largest national integrator in 2017, ITEN Solutions,” he added.

The SOC, which results from the company’s strategic focus on cybersecurity, will monitor the customer platforms that hire this service 24-hours-a-day, every day of the year while detecting incidents or potential security threats and intervening to resolve them.

This includes not only internal platforms (firewalls, directories, routers, etc.), but also external risks will be monitored by analyzing thousands of sources on the internet, social networks and the dark and ​​deep web.

According to the Claranet Research Report 2017/2018, Cyber​security is one of the top priorities of national and international enterprise.

“Organizations nowadays face the great challenge of effectively protecting themselves against ever more complex cyber threats from evolved and resourceful opponents. Claranet Security’s e-business strategy for its customers relies on continuous monitoring 24/7, with detection of possible intrusions, devices infected with malware, detection of copies of the organization’s website, exposed credentials, mentions in the deep & dark web, among other cyber risks,” said Pedro Barbosa, Head of Cybersecurity at Claranet Portugal.

The investment into refurbishing the cybersecurity hub and launching the SOC allows for:

  • Consolidating the operations teams of the company’s various business units in the same location (Hosting, Networks, Technology, Workplace, Business Applications, Public Cloud and Cybersecurity).
  • Launching the new SOC (Security Operations Center).
  • Increasing the capacity of the Training Center by initiating the ‘Claranet University’ program, which aims to develop IT skills for early or transition professionals.
  • Creating the necessary conditions for the opening of the ‘Cloud Center of Excellence’, which intends to strengthen the company’s position in the domestic and Latin American market in the strategic area of ​​cloud service delivery.

“We want to become, in three years, one of the leading providers of cybersecurity solutions in Europe, just as we are in the areas of managed hosting and public coud,” added Ferreira.

Since the beginning of last year, Claranet, which operates in the cloud area, has invested €15 million in the area of ​​cybersecurity in countries such as Portugal, England and France, according to Jornal de Negocios.
