Explain your experience since leaving INESC TEC

At the beginning of the SIMPROVE project, I was offered the position of Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at STI, the company that proposed the project, which I immediately accepted. Given the impossibility of accumulating duties, I’m currently responsible for the technical area in INESC TEC’s partner company, with which I act as a bridge mainly with António Gaspar and Dr. Rui Nóbrega.

In your opinion how did your time at INESC TEC help you in your new role?

The first contact I had with STI was through INESC TEC.

In your opinion, how  has INESC TEC changed since you left?

I don't think I have any change I think I should mention.
