On March 21st and 22nd the transnational meeting of the RATIO project in Portugal occured, hosted by the project partner Municipality of Vila Pouca de Aquiar. The main purpose of the meeting was to analyse the implementation and monitoring of the Action Plans previously approved  (all partners presented their evolution on it), as well as analyse and comment on the future steps of the project that is in its last year of realization.

There was also the opportunity to visit and and contact some enterprises in which innovation has a relevant role in their performance and growth. These companies visited by the RATIO project partners are closely linked with the main endogenous resources of the region: granite and water. The visit enabled the exchange of experience with good practices applications and action plans implementation among the partners.
