PT2WM Project – Portugal to World Mobility

The main organizations of the automotive sector in Portugal – MOBINOV, ACAP and AFIA – join efforts to promote and internationalize the automotive cluster, raising its potential to attraction of foreign investment, through capacity building and business mobilization of an entire sector, which aggregates more and more competitive companies in vehicle construction and component production.

We are witnessing the increased attractiveness of Portugal for international companies and manufacturers, given the proximity of the second European manufacturer (Spain) and the excellent conditions for the establishment of new factories and the creation of new value chains for the production of electric models in Portugal.

Optimizing automotive value chain production processes for efficiency gains – adaptation to Electric Vehicles, Autonomous and Connected Vehicles – combined with strengthening of Research & Development projects to anticipate consumer trends and respond to the optimization needs of the productive sector – adaptation to Circular Economy – also allow Portugal to reposition itself in the automotive market, through the creation of specific software solutions for the vehicles of the future.

Aware of this evolution and the current challenges, the MOBINOV, ACAP and AFIA will continue to support digital transition and energyas well as the development of new mobility concepts, through the creation of business ecosystems in the sector and knowledge networks capable of having an impact on other economic sectors.

On the horizon they already glimpse the new paradigm of consumption of automobiles with associated new forms of alternative energy, which encourage the continued development of decarbonization strategies and solutions in Portugal.
