Transparency Policy


The FCT is committed to promoting full transparency when it comes to contacts with entities receiving funding instruments. As such, it proposes that this dialogue be done in an open and transparent manner and with the knowledge of the other partners and civil society.

Hearings with the Board of Directors

The FCT's Board of Directors is fully available to hold meetings with those involved in the science and technology ecosystem in Portugal, stimulating dialogue so that they can present their points of view, concerns, or suggestions, in all of the Foundation's areas of action.

FCT believes that these participations and dialogues are important to the decision making process and will help to ensure that its policies and funding instruments reflect the needs of Portuguese science.

In this sense, the FCT Board of Directors reiterates its availability to meet with representatives of scientific areas, coordinators of research units, companies, and other partners.

These meetings can be scheduled via email:
