Ourpurposeisclear

Social transformation is our path to a more developed country. Because everyone deserves a chance to learn, evolve, and take advantage of opportunities to develop their unique potential.

Preparing for a fast-paced world

As a society, we struggle to keep up with profound technological and economic changes. In a world where people and knowledge are the most treasured assets, we all risk falling behind if we don't adpat what and how we learn. Against this backdrop of great challenges and urgency, Fundação José Neves was born to bring about change to all those who want to tap into the opportunities of the future.





Building a knowledge society

We are on a mission to promote lifelong learning as a vital part of our future as a society. We believe that by permanently updating what we know and how we learn we can prepare for the rapid changes faced by society, the global economy and the labor market. We are increasingly aware of the need for a new approach and different perspectives. Ready to explore new solutions?

Promoting human potential

Our ambition, outlined by our Founder, is to raise Portugal's position in international Human Development rankings over the next two decades. We believe the best way to achieve this is by providing the Portuguese with a better future through Education. By creating tools that broaden the accesss to new skills we are paving the way for leadership in a digital, fast-paced tomorrow.

ELEVATING PORTUGAL TO LEADERSHIP STATUS IN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

Our ambition is to help elevate Portugal to the top of the global Human Development Ranking within the next 20 years.

Portugal is currently ranked 40th in the United Nations’ Human Development Index, a ranking led by Norway, Switzerland and Ireland.

The latest Human Development Report, published in 2019, was of special relevance to us and a stepping stone for the work to come. This sweeping analysis warned of the emergence of a new generation of inequality – one that separates those who can embrace the digital future from those who don't have the right set of tools or education to do so. It also highlighted the role that education and technology would play in tackling these profound changes in society.

There was a time when completing a college degree and having access to an internet connection would suffice and allow some leve of financial stability. Those days have passed and today, the United Nations Development Program reinforces the need to anticipate the key factors that will influence human development in the coming decades.

We believe Education to be the main driver for a society with higher degrees of
citizenship, social equality and development.


And these are the areas where we will continue to focus our efforts.
