Want to take part

The Invited Chairs Programme was established by FCT to strengthen links between research centres and business partners, involving co-funding by FCT (25%) and a private corporation (75%).

Invited Chairs are established for a period up to three years, and they can be either junior (120k€/year) or senior chairs (180k€/year). This funding mechanism provides an ideal link to provide a setting for the development of problem-driven research, in close collaboration with stakeholders, and thus the dissemination of and exploitation research and innovation with high commercial and/or societal value. CIBIO has been one of the most successful research centres in Portugal regarding the creation of these invited chairs, which have involved until now 3 chairs with major Portuguese corporations (EDP, REN and REFER/IP).

Building on this success, during the development of the BIOPOLIS proposal negotiations have been started with a number of additional national and international corporations  that demonstrated their interest in joining the Invited Chairs Programme.
