Therefore, participants are expected to produce two minute promotional videos addressing Lisbon’s advantages regarding the quality of life and the quality of education.

"Capturing talent is as important as capturing companies and investments and that is what we intend with this contest. Lisbon is an academic city par excellence and the attraction of students and researchers has a positive and multiplier impact. A foreign student in Lisbon today, is an ambassador of the city for the rest of his life”, says Rui Coelho, Executive Director of Invest Lisboa.

The creativity of the proposals will be a valued aspect and above all the communicational impact of the videos on the target audience, composed of foreign students and researchers.

The jury will select a maximum of six proposals, which will then be voted by the public, through views, on Invest Lisboa’s YouTube page.

Applications may be individual or collective and must be submitted by May 31.
