FCT Board of Directors requests to be replaced
In light of the terms of reference for the group nominated by the Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education to reflect on the future of FCT, and of the suspension of all new FCT activities previously planned and communicated to the scientific community, the FCT Board of Directors, on 29 December 2015, presented their resignation to the Minister, in writing and under current law.
The members of the current Board requested that a new Board of Directors be designated as soon as possible, preferably before the legal deadline of three months as of the end of a mandate. The current Board's mandate ended on 31 December 2015.
Until such time, the FCT Board of Directors will continue to carry out its functions, within the established limits, in order to ensure the ongoing FCT activities and projects.
