Documents and Reports
The MIT Portugal Program (MPP) is a multi-phase strategic international collaboration between MIT, Portuguese universities and research institutions, and the Portuguese Ministry of Science, Technology, and Higher Education.
Program funding is provided by the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT, the Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation) with the goal of strengthening the country’s knowledge base and international competitiveness through strategic investments in research, education, innovative ideas, and entrepreneurial activities.
The Program progress is reviewed on an annual basis by the Program Governing Committee, responsible for ensuring the strategy implementation towards the Program’s goals.
The MPP is also reviewed by an independent External Review Committee (ERC), comprised of independent members from the international scientific community with relevant expertise and approved by the Parties.
The ERC reviews the research program of the partnership activities and make recommendations to the Program Directors and the Program Governing Committee.
The below reports outline the impacts of the program throughout its lifespan.
