Embracing Connection



At Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS, we believe in the power of connection and the value of building strong, collaborative relationships, both outside and inside our team. Recognizing the importance of networking and interacting with colleagues in a relaxed environment, we organize monthly get-togethers, a new tradition that kicked off last 6 Feb, with simultaneous events in both Porto and Lisbon.

These gatherings, held over lunch, are designed to foster a sense of community and to provide our team members with the opportunity to connect on a personal level, share ideas, and inspire one another outside the office. By creating a space where conversation flows freely and professional barriers are lowered, we aim to enhance our collaborative spirit and fuel innovation within our organization.

The inaugural sessions in Porto and Lisbon marked the beginning of what will be an ongoing series of get-togethers, scheduled for every first Tuesday of the month. These events are not just about enjoying a meal together; they are about nurturing a culture of openness, support, and mutual respect. They offer a chance to bond with colleagues, discover common interests, and build stronger networks within our professional community.

We are positive this activity (among others being carried out) will enrich our work environment and contribute to the overall well-being and productivity of our team. These are opportunities to strengthen ties with colleagues, to foster a vibrant community spirit, and to contribute to our shared mission of advancing research and innovation. We look forward to witnessing the growth of our community as we continue to come together, share, and collaborate. Here's to the many connections that will be formed and the many ideas that will be sparked in the months to come!
