Identify sectors, segments, and areas bringing future prospect to the Espírito Santo industry that could place the state in a competitive position on the national and international level within a 17-year time horizon.

In order to achieve the overall objective, the project was segmented into five specific objectives, which consist in:

  • 1) Outlining the socioeconomic outlook through indexes for the Espírito Santo industry, economy and society.
  • 2) Gathering social, technological and business trends that are likely to characterize the state’s industrial development in the coming years.
  • 3) Mobilizing entrepreneurs, decision-makers and opinion formers in a process of reflection on guidelines for sustainable industrial development.
  • 4) Identifying sectors, segments and areas that drive development according to regional specificities.
  • 5) Identifying sectors, segments and areas bringing future prospect to the state in a transversal perspective for the entire state.
