Friday is a spin-off of the University of Coimbra, launched by a team with over 30 years of experience in research and development in the fields of Structural, Electrical, Hydraulic, Marine, Coastal and Mechanical Engineering.

More recently, the team has grown and now includes competencies in fields such as Architecture and Industrial Design. Currently over 20 Phd and MSc qualified researchers, among others skilled engineers, work in the development and production teams.
