Introduction:
The need to analyze and define the strategic priorities of health innovation is due to growing challenges that the National Health Service is facing and which can only be answered through an interactive and coordinated action at the global level, with "Innovation Union" strategies in national and international field, involving all partners and stakeholders. This paper aims to describe the work on the project "Health 2.0: Quality and Innovation in the National Health Service" (QISNS), as well as key actions, results and conclusions. The ongoing structural reforms in the Portuguese health
system require for their success, a real and close coordination of the central agencies with scientific societies, academic and civil society, in order to maximize society´s capacity of development and transformation, as recommended by the European initiative "Innovation Union" in 2010 and 2011.In
this sense, analyzing health innovation involves identifying in advance the public policy of innovation and recognizing the progress. The theme of innovation presents an increased importance and relevance given the current situation in the respective country and austerity program and sustained
growth

Objectives:
This Project aims to identify, contextualize and analyze the needs and strategic priorities of health innovation in Portugal

Methodology:
The work was result of a link between various entities, from the central state institutions to health care providers, as well as the academic, scientific and civil society representatives.In the methodological process that preceded the definition of the Strategic Priorities for Health Innovation,
were explored qualitative and quantitative methodologies, and identified organizations and key actors of the health system, science, technology and higher education, national focal points and experts in the thematic areas studied.The methodology adopted was the s-plan Roadmapping, which
consisted of four workshops

Results – Strategic Priorities for Health Innovation:
The Strategic Priorities for Health Innovation intended to define the priorities and strategic needs for innovation in health, functioning as an element that enhances innovation, synergies and continuous quality improvement in the institutions.

Conclusions:
The Strategic Priorities for Health Innovation are shown as a horizontal strategy, based on the innovation strategies of the European Union, adjusted to the Portuguese reality and focused on its National Health Service, imported inputs from international experiences and present results that are
the result of a thorough and comprehensive value creation chain in R&D&I. The definition and context of these strategic priorities arising from the results obtained during the investigation process, demonstrate the current state of R&D&I, namely:
1. Lack of economic profitability of the chain of R&D&I in health;
2. Little transfer of results - translational research;
3. Limited capacity for external financing of projects (European / international);
4. Reduced ability to articulate in R & D & I networks and the subsequent national and international patent registration limited;
5. Limitations on sharing results of resources/ processes / outputs optimization / and reduced protection of intellectual and industrial property.
These findings show that the pathway has been traversed the country, to recognize innovation as indispensable to economic development, sustainability and continuous quality improvement.
