International Prize CEP-AEP 2009

We have the pleasure of announcing that EGITRON was awarded with the international prize CEP-AEP 2009, in “Technology Transfer” field. This prize is given by CEP (Confederação de Empresários de Pontevedra - Pontevedra's Businessmen Association) and by AEP (Associação Empresarial de Portugal - Portuguese Business Association). It was created to distinguish SMEs that are located in the Galicia-Northern Portugal euroregion, in the following fields: "Internationalization", "Technology Transfer", "Innovation" and "Cross-border Cooperation".

The prize given is the recognition for significant and relevant scientific advances, advances in research and/or technology advances, recorded in Spain, Portugal ou at European level. These advances should be related to solutions for business problems that can be directly applied to companies, they should result in significant process improvements and should demonstrate a clear technology, knowledge and collaboration transfer between companies.

The ceremony took place in Bayonne last November 27. It was part of the Galiza-Northern Portugal Business Cooperation Forum and had the presence of numerous experts from several business, academic and political fields of Portugal and Spain.

We are fully aware that this award is not only given to EGITRON's work but also to our clients, that have given us their challenges and needs, cooperating with us in the search for better solutions.

We also can't forget our suppliers without whom we could not have developed our innovative work nor could we answer effectively to our clients’ needs.

We thank you all!
