New FCT Scientific Councils

The first meeting of FCT's new Scientific Councils was held last friday, 29 September, in Lisbon. The four Scientific Councils provide FCT's Board with strategic advice and recommendations on developing, implementing and adapting science and technology support programs.

The Scientific Councils correspond to the areas of Exact Sciences and Engineering, Life and Health Sciences, Natural and Environmental Sciences and Social Sciences and the Humanities. The Councils meet every two months.
