The local innovation ecosystem aims to develop ideas, practices and behaviors that address production, market, public and social demands, according to William Fardini Faiano, head of the environment and innovation coordinator of the Mayor’s Office of Alegre.

“This is an initiative to identify, direct and strengthen the capacity for innovation in the private, academic and public sectors of the two cities, with the idea of ​​making this ecosystem a reality for the entire Caparao region. Alegre has one of the largest scientific productions in the country, taking into account the presence of the campus of the Federal University of Espiritu Santo (Ufes) and the Federal Institute of Espiritu Santo (Ifes), which can be transformed into progress for the entire area,” he explains.

The mayor of Alegre, Nirro Emerick (PP), will take part in the opening of the meeting and stressed that the proposal is precisely to bring together the main actors to plan, expand and spread innovation throughout the southern region.

“Since the beginning of the administration, innovation has been seen as a great opportunity for development and a window through which we can view a future of prosperity for the entire region. Once this ecosystem is in place, the region will be able to reach and be within reach of other innovation hubs around the world. The results prove that innovation is an increasingly effective tool for solving problems that are specific to each segment or that are becoming common to the whole society,” Nirro reinforces.

Local innovation ecosystem

Alegre and Guasui will be served by Sebrae in this journey, which is starting to be organized around the planning of the local innovation ecosystem. The vice mayor of Guaçuí, Wullisses “Licinho” Moreira, believes that the partnership between the two cities in this construction has grounds.

He has no doubt that the consolidation of the Local Innovation Ecosystem will contribute to the involvement of other businessmen, government managers, entrepreneurs and the general population.

“Innovations are already taking place in certain segments of the two cities that have the best pace of development in the Caparao region. Alegre is an academic guide to agricultural research, commerce and agriculture. Guaçuí stands out, among other things, for being the center of hospital technology in the south of the state, as well as for its extensive commercial potential. Both cities already have scattered seeds of an innovative model for the future, now let’s get together, agents and multiply,” he adds.
