State aid for R&D and Innovation

The FCT monitors developments in European competition policy, particularly with regard to state aid granted to research, development and innovation activities, taking part in coordination meetings organized by the MFA and being asked to take positions within the MCTES.

FCT ensures that the State Aid granted annually through its funding instruments that may constitute aid schemes (namely the Regulation on Projects Financed Exclusively by National Funds and the Regulation on Scientific Employment) is reported on the SARI Platform. FCT also ensures that changes to aid schemes are notified (on the SANI platform).
