HfPT - Health from Portugal, falls within the “Health, well-being and territory” area and more specifically, in the “Health” subarea, given its relevance in health technologies and the provision of innovative services, through the exploration and development of existing skills in terms of R&D and the quality of healthcare provision



HfPT intends to be the first materialization of the Health Development Plan (PDS) and promote its objectives of activating and accelerating the structural transformation of the Portuguese economy and boosting recovery from the installed crisis, responding to important opportunities on a global scale, European and national.

With this ambition, the HfPT will enhance the improvement of the country's specialization profile in activities with high added value linked to Health, pursuing the objective and ambitious goals of the PDS in terms of investment in R&D, economic valorization of knowledge, innovation, qualified employment and aligned and inserted exports.


The HfPT agenda aims to position Portugal as a world reference hub in the design, development and production of advanced solutions aimed at the health markets, based on innovation and technology​​​
