Technology Research Team

Applications for the CYTED 2024 Program will be open from April 1 to 30. The call announces funding for thematic networks involving research teams from at least six of the program's member countries. Projects must focus on one of the thematic lines established by CYTED - Ibero-American Program of Science and Technology for Development.

Funding from the CYTED Programme is intended for the coordination activities of the thematic networks and has a maximum limit of 20,000 euros per year, granted for the mobility of the constituent groups, the organization of workshops and courses and publications.

The selected projects will receive funding for a maximum period of four years and will have access to a wide range of resources and services offered by CYTED to support the implementation of the projects and the dissemination of the results obtained.

The thematic lines open are: 1-Agro-food, 2-Health, 3-Promotion of industrial development, 4-Sustainable development, global change and ecosystems, 5-Information and communication technologies, 6-Science and society and 7-Energy.

FCT represents Portugal in the CYTED Program, where Portuguese researchers are currently present in thirty thematic networks, coordinating four of them. This call is an opportunity for Portuguese researchers to increase their participation and take advantage of funding for collaboration in high-impact R&D projects in the priority areas of the CYTED program.

This program, which has been running since 1984, aims to foster scientific and technological cooperation between Ibero-American countries and has funded more than 5,000 projects over the years.

Researchers interested in participating can find more information about the call and eligibility requirements on the official CYTED website.
