“PAPS: Bringing Portugal to New Heights”

“PAPS: elevar a marca Portugal além fronteiras”

This year, we will be discussing how PAPS and its members can promote the unique value of Portugal and its institutions, companies, academic programs and any Portuguese project that is or has the potential to be successful in North America.
The success of the PAPS meeting is inevitably linked to the quality of the speakers and networking opportunities between PAPS members and invited top professionals from Portugal and North America. In this year’s meeting we have the honor of having noted Portuguese personalities such as the Portuguese ambassador in the U.S. Nuno Brito, Rui Albuquerque (Associate Professor of Finance and Dean’s Research Fellow, Boston University), Manuel Adelino (Assistant Professor of Finance, Duke University’s School of Business, George Perry (Professor and Dean at University of Texas at San Antonio, and PAPS Texas Chapter Leader), among others.

The forum is a space for sharing experiences and capitalizing on the value of its participants and guests. Come and attend the workshops on practical information, career coaching, public speaking and leadership skills, turning ideas into businesses or patent law!
