Cooperation Profiles for Faculty Matchmaking

Within the scope of the upcoming Call for Exploratory Research Projects (ERPs), the UT Austin Portugal Program is inviting Principal Investigators (PIs) at UT Austin and in Portugal to create and submit cooperation profiles.

The Program highly encourages PIs at UT Austin and at non-corporate R&D institutions in Portugal with strong research interests in the topics addressed in the 5 areas of the Program, to to look in advance for research partners they would like to cooperate with within the scope of ERPs, thus facilitating future submissions of applications and potential funding opportunities.

How to proceed:

You may contact the profiles below directly. In case contact details have not been made public, the UT Austin Portugal Program may operate as a matchmaker and put in contact people who have expressed interest in getting in touch with a certain profile, for the purpose of a potential ERP partnership. Contact us at info@utaustinportugal.org to do so.

If you wish to submit your profile, visit this page for more information.
