Provisional results from Call for the National Study of Roma Communities

The FCT has announced the provisional results of Call for the National Study of Gypsy Communities, with one project being recommended for funding out of three eligible applications. The funding awarded to the project is 198,224.05 thousand euros, fully financed by national funds, with the FCT contributing 90% and the Economic and Social Council (CES) contributing 10%.

The Call aims to support the financing of a research project on the study of the socio-economic situation of the Roma community in Portugal and knowledge of their living conditions, in four fundamental areas: employment, housing, health and education.

The project recommended for funding aims to carry out an in-depth portrait of the Roma population in Portugal, with a particular focus on the strategic axes of health, employment, education, housing, vocational training, gender inequality, discrimination and anti-gypsyism, and to contribute to the formulation of public policies that efficiently combat the different levels and forms of inequality and discrimination and lead to the creation of spaces and opportunities for greater equality.
