Research Grants

Fraunhofer Portugal, through its research centers, strives to assume a knowledge transfer role and contribute to an increasingly skilled work-force in Portugal, by offering university students and researchers the opportunity to carry out practical advanced training at its labs, helping them develop a market-oriented approach to their applied research and the development of their skills in a “real-world” environment.

As such, Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS offers Research Grants to individuals with proven academic qualifications within the fields defined in its Research Areas.
