You can find our Press Release here.


The XII edition of the annual PAPS Forum will be taking place in New York at the NYU Langone Medical Center on April 16 and 17 this year.

In the dawn of this new decade Portugal faces a critical moment in its path to strive forward. Harvesting the Globalized Portuguese Talent abroad, over the next few years, will play a fundamental role on successfully overcoming this challenge.

As such we propose to our members to come and take part on a series of exciting panel sessions, namely "Portuguese Science: The Way Forward", "Impact of the Diaspora on the Portuguese Economy" and "Portugal: The Brand", backed up with prominent leaders from several fields of the globalized Portuguese Academia, Industry and Society. Please check the Program page for more information.

On Sunday morning the PAPS General Assembly will take place, electing a new team that will lead PAPS during the next year.

Your ideas, critical thinking and insight are of upmost importance for the success of this project. We look forward to welcoming you to New York City!
