On Wednesday, July 10th National Co-Director of CMU Portugal, Nuno Nunes, presented on the new Call for Exploratory Research Programs (ERPs) and Phase III Initiatives at Carnegie Mellon University. ERPs are designed to assist teams of researchers from Portuguese institutions, Carnegie Mellon University and industry partners, to bootstrap high-impact potential research activities of strategic relevance for the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program. Professor Nunes discussed the timeline of the ERP Call, the applicable research areas, and connecting with collaborators in Portugal. Nuno also gave an overview of the recently closed Large-scale Collaborative Research Project Call, the Dual Degree PhD Programs, the Mobility Programs, and the Executive Program Initiative.
The session was well attended by faculty members from several different CMU departments including: Civil and Environmental Engineering, Human- Computer Interaction Institute, Entertainment Technology Center, Information Communication Technology Institute, and Materials Science and Engineering. Questions and comments from Faculty were answered following the presentation.
The Call for ERPs is currently open and will close later this month on July 30th at 5:00 pm GMT. For more information, please visit https://cmuportugal.org/exploratory-research-projects/.
