Dr. Atson Fernandes, who at the time publicly honored the coordinator of the Center for Technological Innovation and the Center for Health Research (NIT/NUPS), Prof. Me Fernanda Ferraz, for the excellence in organizing the event.

In her words, Dr. Maria Luisa showed her indignation with the current situation in the country, facing the pandemic, and lamented the nearly 300 killed by COVID-19: "There is no innovation, no technology, no individual entrepreneurship because it depends on public policies that are made by public entities, made by the Federal Government, made by Congress. So we need policies. And we have been talking, lately, about a policy that has led to death." She ended her speech by drawing everyone's attention to the importance of innovating and undertaking, as citizens, a solution that would take the country out of its current situation.

"Science, technology, innovation, entrepreneurship. These are the elements that, at the present time, are capable of going against all the difficulties that we are going through", said Dr. Adélia Pinheiro, in her speech that started the works on the second day of ENEIS, whose program included the presentation of four panels aimed at the development of science, innovation and technologies in health.
