The first Technology Transfer Day (VALUE Crossroad Day) held in Portugal took place in Porto on the 3 March 1994, organized by the Portuguese Relay Centre. The event focused on ESPRIT project results in the area of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM).

The choice of Porto for the first Portuguese venue on a calendar of similar events which have been linking research organizations and SMEs in Europe since early 1993, was considered by all the parties involved as especially important, since the town is the capital of the region in Portugal which has the largest number of small and medium-sized enterprises.

More than twenty companies attended the event, where five ESPRIT-CIM results were presented:
- Development of tools for economic evaluation of CIM in smaller manufacturing companies (presented by BIBA of Germany);
- Automotive Industry CIM (presented by Alfamicro of Portugal);
- Modular framework for evolutionary implementation of shop floor control (joint presentation by INESC and TECNOTRON of Portugal);
- Advanced Intelligent Multisensor System for control and boilers and furnaces (joint presentation by IST and SERVOTOL of Portugal);
- User-driven and configuration tool-set for CIM implementation in SMEs (presented by IBK of Germany).

Follow-up of all these activities is ensured by both the Portuguese VALUE Relay Centre and the VALUE Relay Service Coordination Unit.
