CIÊNCIAVITAE celebrates one year


(Not available in English)

CIÊNCIAVITAE is to be congratulated and so are its users. Since September 2018, nearly 21,000 curricula have already been created. In this first anniversary of the new curriculum management platform, we review some numbers of these last 365 days and also look to the future.

The 20,807 users of the platform registered an average of 22,320 scientific articles, 4,112 projects and 1,060 institutions per month.

Since the beginning of 2019, applicants for FCT funding can choose to associate their CIÊNCIAVITAE curriculum to the application. Since then, this association has been possible in 7 Calls, with 34% of the associated curricula being CIÊNCIAVITAE curricula.

The new curriculum management platform has been widely promoted through the more than 59 presentation sessions held. The CIÊNCIAVITAE team has been all over the country, for a year, traveling to various institutions in face-to-face actions to disseminate the platform. In addition to the 27 face-to-face sessions that went through 13 cities, there are also 32 sessions in webinar format, in Portuguese and English. These actions have been well received by the community, with an evaluation of 4.5 on a scale of 1 to 5. There were more than 1300 participants from 111 institutions, and the number will continue to grow.

CIÊNCIAVITAE is a single, personalized, simple, harmonized and structured curriculum, hosted at It allows the gathering in a single platform of information regarding the user, whether student, researcher or institution, and that is currently scattered on multiple platforms, such as FCT-SIG CV, DeGóis, RENATES, REBIDES, ORCID and RCAAP.

CIÊNCIAVITAE is developed by FCT based on the DeGóis platform, in articulation with the technical and normative framework PTCRIS, and can be used by all national institutions in the area of science and higher education that choose to join.
