The 2017 edition of the Call for Scientific Research and Technological Development Projects under the Cooperation Agreement between Portugal and the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) is open until July 27.

Through this Call, FCT intends to support scientific research and technological development projects associated with official scientific collaborations or recognized by CERN, as well as technology-based projects in the field of applied sciences, in collaboration with activities supported by the same Laboratory.

The Call will support projects for a maximum period of 24 months (extendable for a maximum of 12 more months in duly justified cases), and has a budget of 1.5 M€. The approved projects will be fully financed by national funds through the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education.

Priority will be given to projects associated with major long-term international collaborations or the use of CERN's experimental facilities and to actions that enhance the transfer of technology generated at CERN, or that aim at the prospection and execution of research and experimental development projects, with business participation, in collaboration with CERN.
