Info Session: US – Portugal International Partnerships go to Europe

The PERIN network (Portugal in Europe Research and Innovation Network), in collaboration with Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) international partnerships – CMU Portugal, MIT Portugal, and UT Austin Portugal – will host a virtual info session about further research opportunities under EU funding programs on May 5th, 2022, 2:00- 4.30 pm (Lisbon Time) / 9:00 /11:30 am (Pittsburgh Time). 
The US Partnerships aim to promote the internationalization of Portugal’s Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and research organizations through innovative projects with leading US Universities and the mobility of highly qualified human resources. This info session intends to explore other funding paths, in addition to the typical funding available through the International Partnerships, that may help already established US-PT move their results along the value chain and/or further their collaborative research.
Participation in this event is restricted to researchers involved in these initiatives.
