Matosinhos - Mobinov is celebrating eight years of coordinating innovation and enhancing the international competitiveness of Portugal’s automotive industry. The organization includes 90 automotive companies, researchers, and others who have worked on 15 projects in Portugal and Europe.

The platform that aggregates knowledge in Portugal’s automotive industry, Mobinov, recently celebrated its eighth anniversary of driving collaboration and innovation.

We've cultivated a dynamic community.”

The Mobinov platform helps automotive firms in Portugal enhance their international competitiveness through research, innovation, design, development, manufacturing, and the testing of products and services in the industry.
