Scientific development is the best guarantee for the development of a challenging national culture of evaluation and quality.

The Portuguese authorities have made considerable efforts to stimulate the development of science and technology and innovation.

The increase in public and private investment in R&D is seen as a major element in the development of Portugal's competitiveness. For that, high priority is given to the training and qualification of human resources, seeking to bolster the promotion of excellence, providing the best conditions for the development of research and innovation projects, and attracting the cooperative efforts of other international partners.

In the websites of the Foundation for Science and Technology and the Directorate General of Higher Education, you can find information about opportunities to study or to do research in Portugal.
