Research

The Program’s Line of Action Research aims at selecting, funding and supporting collaborative transatlantic projects on emerging and transformative R&D topics with global resonance.

It is structured around competitive calls, managed by FCT alone or alongside other sponsors, and anchors on two different types of projects which ensure a wall-to-wall approach to the knowledge-to-value chain and the Program’s strategic alignment with high-level long-term goals.

For the Program’s 3rd Phase, the Partnership agreed on funding up to 23 Strategic Research Projects and 27 Exploratory Research Projects, i.e., a total of 50 joint teams.
