First National Meeting of eGames Lab

On July 1,  TERINOV – Terceira Island Science and Technology Park, hosted the First National Meeting of eGames Lab, an event that marked a significant step forward for the video games industry in Portugal. This consortium, funded by the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR), is transforming the national video games scene by creating an industrial cluster that aims to retain talent and attract foreign investment. With a total investment of 29.9 million euros, eGames Lab has already created 112 new jobs, demonstrating a solid commitment to innovation and technological development.

SOLVIT’s contribution 

The eGames Lab is made up of 22 entities, including 14 companies, SOLVIT – Innovation on Telecommunications being one of those. Although not directly linked to video games, SOLVIT plays a crucial role in optimizing connections between terminals and servers, ensuring that games running on remote servers are fast and responsive, thus improving the players’ experience. 

To date, the project has been present at renowned international events such as the Game Developers Conference (San Francisco), Gamescom (Cologne) and C-PLPEX (Macau), highlighting Portugal’s position on the global video games scene.

Holding this meeting at TERINOV symbolizes not only the progress made so far, but also future opportunities. Professionals from various fields, such as design, psychology, audio and music, collaborate to boost research and development in the field of video games, making eGames Lab one of the world’s largest research groups in this sector.

We are excited about the possibilities that this consortium brings to the video games industry in Portugal and are proud to be part of this innovative initiative. The future of video games in Portugal has never been brighter, and SOLVIT is committed to continuing to contribute to this progress.
