FCT opens Call for the award of the title of Collaborative Laboratory - CoLAB


(english version available soon)

The Foundation for Science and Technology has opened the competition for the recognition and awarding of the title of Collaborative Laboratory.

Collaborative Laboratories should be established as private non-profit associations or companies. Their main objective is to create, directly and indirectly, qualified employment and scientific employment in Portugal, through the implementation of research and innovation agendas oriented to the creation of economic and social value.

CoLABs must meet the challenge of densification of the national territory in terms of knowledge-based activities, through an increasing consolidation of forms of collaboration between science, technology and higher education institutions and the economic and social fabric, namely companies, the hospital and health system, cultural institutions and social organizations.

The competition will remain open permanently. Obtaining the title will subsequently allow you to apply for specific funding.

More information about the call is available on the call page, in the Call for Applications, the Submission Guide, the Evaluation Guide, and the Regulations for Awarding the Title of Collaborative Laboratory (CoLAB).
