Knowledge and innovation are increasingly the economy dynamic and competitive engines. The widespread recognition of this evidence reinforces the importance of the link between "knowing" and "doing", making clear the need to strengthen the conciliation of two worlds with purposes, distinct mentalities and languages: higher education institutions and enterprises.
Higher education institutions while spaces of knowledge production and transmission, and enterprises has spaces of knowledge conversion into economic and social value, are therefore condemned to dialogue and cooperate, or the result, for the first one, is to lose much of its social relevance and for the second one to simply survive and be overcome by others that learned to innovate, interpreting and responding to the markets demands.

Higher Education Institutions in general have rendered important services to the community, achieving, particularly in the countryside, making the development of local and regional communities depend on the existence of Polytechnic education.
Through the Polytechnics, some social justice has been somewhat restored the level of various regions of the country via the possibility of formation of young people with skills but without economic power to move to university centers, preventing the desertification of the interior by attending degrees and thru the installation of economic sectors, related to trade, industry and services.

The importance of this journal has been underlined by unsuspecting witnesses, throughout this time period in which its position has been quietly and gradually consolidated, measured by the editorial line drawn upon its release.
Moreover, its growing demand by elements connected to different academic communities, nationally and internationally, encourages the commitment of all those who are related to it, in terms of conception, content, layout, printing and distribution – in an increasingly more careful work since it does not cease to be an image and brand of this higher education institution.

Egitania Sciencia Journal - Volume 8 Egitania Sciencia Journal - Volume 8
Several times, I had the opportunity to say that the link between research and teaching is of paramount importance. What we investigate does not only serve to write "papers" and to enhance the curriculum of teachers and researchers: our teachers must have the concern and willingness to direct their research activity to solve practical and real problems of businesses and institutions.
We must enhance the knowledge produced within the institutions of higher education, placing it at the service of companies and institutions in the region and the country, through a network of partnerships in the region.

In these my first words, as President of IPG, for the journal Egitania Sciencia, I would like to retain some of the statements I made in the inauguration session.
First, because I believe i tis timely in this renewed invitation to the involvement of all who teach at the Institute, with the publication that presents its seventh volume, respecting their periodicity, reaffirming its goals.
I understand that polytechnic higher education teachers, and in particular the IPG, must definitely embrace and adopt their roles and their responsibilities, which go far beyond the arduous and demanding task, no doubt, that is teaching.

When the first issue of this journal was published, three years ago, the opportunity and the interest of a publication with a scientific and educational nature was stressed.
The set goals for "Egitania Sciencia" was to foster research and share knowledge in the fields of culture, art, didactics and pedagogy that, after this period of time, has received an increasing attention from researchers and authors linked to several academic circles.

Egitania Sciencia Journal - Volume 5 Egitania Sciencia Journal - Volume 5
The growing interest that this journal has raised, not only among the academic community, reinforces the reasons given at the time of its release. We then wrote that the increase in the publishing activity of the Polytechnic Institute was one of the priorities expected by the Presidency, despite the limitations in terms of human and financial resources. The determination of a small work team surpassed the number of constraints and managed to assert Egitania Sciencia as a publication of reference. Indeed, it is with particular satisfaction that we noticed that this journal has gone far beyond the previously set perspectives, having established its goals in the emergence of support to the research activity developed in IPG and in the interior of the country, we can find, that after these numbers, the comprehensiveness of other geographical areas, within and outside the national territory.

As a result of the recent II Conference on Technology and Healthcare, promoted by this Polytechnic Institute, we argue that it is extremely important to establish a dialogue between researchers and health professionals, as well as the structures / institutions to which they are attached. As we had occasion to point out, it is essential to disseminate projects, software solutions designed in institutions of higher education, in order to deepen the desired interaction between this level of teaching and businesses, aimed at the area of technologies applied to health; cooperation from which numerous benefits can result.
Our journal has materialized, through various papers, this cooperation, some of these works have already had practical reflection on the event referenced above, thus translating an interesting and timely matter complementarity that should be increased in several areas.

This issue of the Egitania Sciencia Journal derives from a new statutory framework of the Polytechnic Institute of Guarda.
The new statutes take on, as I have had the opportunity to previously say, a great importance for the IPG.
The new management system, the clarification of functions of the various units, the new organization of the Institute's services allow it to modernize itself and become more agile in its response capacity, both internally and externally.

Egitania Sciencia Journal - Volume 2 Egitania Sciencia Journal - Volume 2
As we had occasion to write in the first issue of this journal, the increase on research and sharing of knowledge in the fields of teaching, education, culture and technics are the main objectives of Egitania Sciencia.
Even at the beginning of a journey that we wish will be a long one, guided by quality and suitable collaborations, the entry of our editorial plan by this Polytechnic Institute deserved a very positive acceptance, the opportunity of this new project was particularly welcomed.
And the interest aroused did not confine itself to our academic community but received support from other institutions, namely from higher education ones; as well as the availability by other individual contributions, with acknowledge and well recognized merit.

Egitania Sciencia Journal - Volume 1 Egitania Sciencia Journal - Volume 1
The increase in the publishing activity of the Polytechnic Institute of Guarda has been one of our concerns over the recent years.
Despite the undoubted limitations in this area - as elsewhere - in terms of human and financial resources - a plan was worked out where we have integrated editing of multiple papers, with different themes.
However, based on the experience from the previous journal of this Institute, we understand that it is justified, given the current reality, a new publication of scientific and pedagogical nature.
