PremiumNational companies shine in education technologies

JP Inspiring Knowledge, Bi-Bright and ubbu have their say in 'virtualeduca.connect', which runs from July 21st to 23rd, under the sign of the future.

The Covid-19 pandemic has placed 1.500 billion students in distance learning and has given a leading role to education technologies. The near future will be uncertain, but it will certainly bring a more digitalized component in teaching and learning, which for companies in the sector is challenging and represents business opportunity. In the world, innovations are multiplying and Portugal is part of the movement.

Adelino Sousa, the Portuguese who runs Virtual Educa, a kind of “Web summit of education”, told Jornal Económico that “Portugal has tradition in the sector and companies with ambition, very well regarded throughout Latin America”. These companies have their say at the summit 'virtualeduca.connect', which takes place on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of July online, under the sign of the future. The summit acts as a kind of antechamber for the 22nd edition of Virtual Educa, which Lisbon would receive this month, but Covid-19 forced it to postpone it to FIL at November.
