Students, professors and researchers often rely on online communication to obtain and disseminate more knowledge. From video conferencing, webinars, or multimedia content production, our wide range of services helps the ongoing collaboration between the academic and scientific community.


Access to reliable sources of scientific information is important for the deepening and dissemination of knowledge. These services include subscriptions to journals, as well as open access platforms that support the projects of students, teachers and researchers.


Advanced education and research necessities need tailored solutions. From advanced computing services, to Cloud data storage and sharing, we support projects with high technological complexity, with agility and speed.

Get to know our supercomputers: Deucalion, Marenostrum-5 and other supercomputers in the RNCA - National Network for Advanced Computing

The scientific and innovation communities will be able to access these supercomputing resources through the FCT's annual Advanced Computing Projects Calls , which you can follow on this page.


As the Internet of knowledge, our mission is to make communication in the academic and scientific community, nationally and internationally, more efficient. Therefore, we created the RCTS - Science, Technology and Society Network - which guarantees high speed connectivity between all connected institutions. We ensure that researchers, teachers and students have access to all the resources they need for their projects to run successfully.


Every day, thousands of students, teachers, and researchers use online services to exchange information that is indispensable to the advancement of knowledge. Whether through email, videoconferencing, e-learning, or scientific articles and journals, sharing is intended to be secure and trustworthy.
