Research Projects (national and European)
A major part of the scientific activity is co-funded by Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology or by the European Commission. Outside the European Union we are engaged in research activity within the framework of the Iberian-American Programme for promoting the cooperation in research and development, and in the scope of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) Research and Development Programmes.
By leading and participating in national and international research projects we seek to maintain the leading edge in science and technology and thus ensure our ability to provide advanced services to our customers and partners.
By promoting the involvement of enterprises in these research and development networks we give them the opportunity to work out their technological challenges as well as access to valuable national and international research networks.
