FCT shares its experience and practices with Mozambique

FCT was present at the MoRENet Conference, the Cybersecurity Summit and the 2nd seminar on Open Science, three events that took place recently in Maputo city (Mozambique), from 11 to 15 November. The aim of this participation was to share the experience and practices of FCT in the areas of Open Science, Science Management, Security and MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses). The fact that these events took place in the same week, allowed for an intense participation, aimed at various target audiences.

The Director of the Advanced Services Area of the Advanced Computing Unit of FCT, João Gomes, made presentations on the themes of "Nau Platform - Always learning" and "Sharing the CERT experience of the Portuguese Academic and Scientific Network". The Director of the Scientific Knowledge Area, João Mendes Moreira, presented the Open Science and science management initiatives in Portugal, and also gave a workshop on science management, in which the PTCRIS program, Ciência ID and CIÊNCIAVITAE were addressed.

Mozambique is already the 3rd country with the most Nau registrations, after Portugal and Brazil.

This collaboration anticipates the spirit of the theme of the next Portuguese Presidency of the EU, which will be Europe-Africa.
