Visit of international delegation within the project D2IN

It was with great pleasure that the DRT Group received an international delegation within the D2IN project (Double Degrees for Research, Innovation and Internationalisation of Leiria Region), with members of Universities and Institutions of Portugal, Spain, Panama and Brazil.

The D2IN project, developed by NERLEI in partnership with the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria and with the support of the CCDRC, aims to boost the process of internationalisation of companies, adopting a methodology based on multicultural training experience. In this way it provides the training of masters students, in an international context, in target markets of business and consequently the integration of people coming from these same markets, in R & D + I projects, business projects or internships.

This is a topic of great relevance, usefulness and application in the DRT Group, so it was an honour to participate in this project, to which we wish a great success.
