R&D Institutions


FCT organises regular reviews of national R&D institutions.

The reviews are based on periodic assessments by an international panel of experts, based on the R&D institutions' activity reports and proposed strategic plans as well as on direct contacts with researchers and institutions, through site visits and/or interviews by the reviewers.

All R&D institutions are awarded a qualitative grade, which determines the level of funding to be awarded, until the next review takes place, or until a mid-term assessment is made.
