16 Engineering is The process of applying and developing Science and Technology in order to solve people s problems in innovative ways under resource constraints, in particular time and money. «The best qualification for innovation is a basic training in Engineering. Engineers are taught that design matters, that most things are part of a system in which everything interacts, that their job is to worry about trade-offs, and that they must continually be measuring the robustness of the systems they set up. Such a frame of mind fosters innovation. It may be no coincidence that many of the greatest corporate leaders in America, Europe and Japan, past and present, trained first as engineers» Michael Hammer: Re-Engineering the Corporation Special Report on Business Innovation The Economist, April 24 (p.77) João Falcão e Cunha Copyright

46 experts in precision International demand for machinery made in Portugal (moulds, electronics, automotive components, pneumatic and hydraulic equipment, etc.) continues to grow and assist the development of countries throughout the world. Did you know that machinery is Portugal s No. 1 export?
47 design and engineering Did you know that Portugal is a state-of-the-art point of reference and reliability in the moulds industry? Samsonite, Nokia, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche are just some of the names that rely on Portuguese talent and engineering.
48 new generation fabrics Did you know that 26 million Americans sleep on Portuguese sheets? And that Portugal leads Europe in home textiles and is the third largest exporter in the world? Portuguese brands stand out because of their sheer innovation: intelligent fabrics, fabrics that are fire-retardant, anti-bacterial or have therapeutic and hydrating properties.
49 shoes of the future Did you know that Portugal leads the world in footwear technology? That it is Europe s No. 3 exporter? That it invented bullet-proof shoes? Ninety million people in the world choose Portuguese shoes. Steven Spielberg is one of them: the Portuguese brand Swear supplied the shoes for Star Wars. And Fly London, Yucca and Aerosoles just keep growing.
50 hidden leadership Portugal is acknowledged as being the world s leading cork producer. But there are also some lesser known areas in which it leads. Did you know that Number Five has captured 75% of the world market for self-identification? And have you heard of Altitude (leading supplier of technology for call centres and CRM), and what about Chipidea (world leader in the design of analog solutions that provide the interface between digital technology and the real world)?
51 light and design Did you know that the Portuguese company Vista Alegre /Atlantis is one of the 10 main porcelain producing groups in the world? Other major brands such as Spal, Topázio, Cutipol or Sátira offer creativity and design for a happier home.
52 technology for life Beating incurable diseases or preserving stem cells for regenerative medicine are the everyday concerns of companies such as Biotecnol, Alfama (winner of the European start-up prize in 2005), Crioestaminal, Medinfar /Cytothera, Biocant and IBET. Others are developing new pharmaceutical solutions companies such as Bial and Cipan. All these companies are working to achieve a better life surely they deserve to be known?
53 passion for construction From Asia to America, from Africa to Europe, for centuries Portugal construction skills have presented challenges, made their mark and endured. Do you know how? With Portuguese architects, engineers and materials. The airport on Madeira and the Ponte da Amizade on Macau are just recent examples.
54 navigating always pioneers Nelo is one of the best-known kayak brands in the world. First in Sydney, and then more recently in Athens an Peking, its kayaks helped several teams and athletes to win medals at the Olympic Games. They are Portuguese in design and production and their technology revolutionised standards for top competition in this field.
58 Conclusion Portugal is an increasingly open and global technology-based economy João Falcão e Cunha Copyright
64 Fernando Pessoa Portuguese writer and poet, To win we need three things we can define: to know how to work, to follow opportunities and to create relationships. We also need something else, that we find difficult to define and, lacking a better name, we call luck. Para vencer material ou imaterialmente três coisas definíveis são precisas: saber trabalhar, aproveitar oportunidades, e criar relações. O resto pertence ao elemento indefinível, mas real, a que, à falta de melhor nome, se chama sorte. 64
