The INCM - Dialogue with the Future forum is a multi-disciplinary space for reflection, dialogue and exchange of experiences and knowledge, with close links to academia and science and to the world of business.

Each session of the forum aims to explore in depth a subject that is relevant to INCM's path of innovation and modernisation. Particular emphasis is placed on best examples and practices for developing new business strategies and expanding the range of goods and services that the company offers to citizens and public and private organisations, both in Portugal and around the world.
