|Tourism and Heritage
||Due to the richness of the existing natural and cultural heritage, the Azores orient their offer mainly towards the nature tourism segment and some relevant niches such as geological or maritime tourism, as well the cultural traditions and History.
Thus, Tourism and Heritage's main challenge is adding value to tourism products and services based on the Azores' unique offer.
|Sea and Blue Growth
||In the Azores, the economic use of the sea is crucial due to its geostrategic position, extensive exclusive maritime zone, and biodiversity. Key activities include technological innovation, valorization of marine resources through biotechnology, aquaculture, efficient maritime space management, circular models, ecosystem resilience, decarbonization, digital technologies, data production, food security, and inter-regional cooperation.
||Healthcare in the Azores is vital, focusing on social inclusion and efficiency. The goals include technological innovation, circular models, sustainable practices, personalized care, digital transition, telehealth implementation, and leveraging biometrics and artificial intelligence for data processing. Emphasis is placed on proximity care, primary and hospital care integration, natural resource utilization, and health literacy.
