On-Going Projects

 

Nova SBE researchers have an excellent track record in securing external funding from Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT),  the Portuguese national funding agency for science, research and technology. FCT is the major source of funds for research and scholarships for Portuguese academic institutions.

Additionally, given the international dimension of Nova SBE and the recognition of its researchers work at a global level, other sources of funding are secured from public and private entities.
