At GEG, the development of science takes place basically through cooperative actions with scientific institutions (Cooperation) and through the projects it develops (Production).
GEG’s production and scientific cooperation focus on the clients’ requests, on the projects for specific needs we develop, and also on global trends, through domestic research, improvement and innovation projects that represent the company’s focus on the development and creation of innovating solutions, processes, and methodologies.
For each project, we determine the needs and define the strategies and the partnerships in order to find the best solution, which will be, whenever necessary, an innovation solution.
The initiatives of Research & Development (R&D) promoted or participated by GEG constitute important projects in scientific cooperation.
The main goal of these cooperation projects lies on participation in the development of more efficient and more innovation engineering solutions that can respond to the multiple challenges of our times: the environmental and energetic sustainability of every intervention, the economic competitiveness of every investment, the users’ well-being and the minimisation of natural or technological risks.
Throughout its privileged connections with the university and scientific world, in Portugal or in other countries, GEG joins scientific initiatives from scientific institutions: it participates in R&D programs and assignments, and in international cooperation protocols led by universities and institutes, it joins student and researcher international internship and exchange programs.
In order to promote the expansion and the share of knowledge, GEG engages itself in international congresses, seminars, technical meetings and in other events with a scientific nature. With the same purpose, GEG also promotes regularly the development and the support to masters and PhD dissertations.
Challenging projects or those implying more specific needs foster as well cooperation with universities, knowledge centres and laboratories through the hiring of studies and services for the development of some of the projects GEG is responsible for.
At GEG, we commit ourselves to the development of the best engineering solutions. In order to give the best response to each project’s specific needs, whenever one project itself demands it we develop innovation solutions and reach for the most advanced technologies.
In addition to the scientific cooperation, at GEG we believe that is essential to base Research, Development, and Innovation on two important vectors: the management of R&D projects and one type of organisational culture focussed on innovation.
The innovation projects’ management developed at GEG bases itself on a continuous improvement and on the systematic management of every project that implies Research, Development, and Innovation. One of the projects that have become one of the company’s focuses at the level of research, development, and innovation relates itself to BIM methodology. This particular focus aims at maximising the potentialities of each tool and their interconnection.
The promotion of a culture of entrepreneurial innovation has been implemented by GEG through the development of multidisciplinary teams, with broad experience and advanced training, through coaching and ongoing training of his staff, and also through proactive policies that will enhance the skills and proficiency of its human resources.
