NOVA University Lisbon launched the Innovation District, a project aiming to create a new global city in Almada, that will combine a unique and sustainable lifestyle in a new geography of innovation and technological knowledge. NOVA School of Science and Technology is the heart of the Innovation District in Almada, a project developed by NOVA together with public and private partners.
Fully aligned with NOVA’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), this project highlights the importance of Universities in the local communities as drivers of change. It actively addresses SDG 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities, namely target 11.3, aiming at enhancing inclusive and sustainable urbanization and capacity for participatory, integrated and sustainable human settlement planning and management in all countries. Its innovative design is also an example of multi-stakeholder engagement, a partnership for the Goals – SDG 17.
This project will follow sustainability best practices, aligned with the Green Deal and the Paris Agreement. It constitutes an opportunity to invest in clean energy and transform existing buildings to meet energy efficient standards. NOVA starts its journey towards carbon neutrality!
