Bilateral Cooperation

Bilateral cooperation in Science and Technology promotes the strengthening of scientific and technological cooperation through various mechanisms that promote scientific exchange, such as joint Calls to support research projects or mobility, support for the training of researchers, publication of joint scientific articles, presentation of joint papers or participation in international congresses.

The dynamics created through these activities promote the creation of networks of researchers and the reinforcement of existing international partnerships, allowing an international consolidation of the teams that will enhance access to other sources of funding for international science and technology programs.

There are more than 70 countries with which Portugal has bilateral cooperation agreements, be they in the field of cultural cooperation (and which include references to science and technology) or scientific cooperation, the latter being either intergovernmental or institutional.

You may consult the existing Cultural Agreements at Camões Institute website.
