The city of Rio de Janeiro inspired the theme of the Anprotec Conference, from the renovation — urban, economic and social — driven by innovative entrepreneurship in recent years. This transformation, experienced in other regions of Brazil and the world, is based on the creation of favorable conditions for the consolidation of a new economy based on knowledge.

Therefore, new arrangements, environments and ecosystems become the leading figure of the development process. The result: more dynamic cities, with new vocations, different sources of employment and income and, most importantly, people engaged in the search for solutions to local and global challenges.

This year’s Anprotec Conference aims to discuss the role to be played by innovative environments and mechanisms to generate innovative projects, in Brazil and in the world.
