The Call for Exploratory Research Projects, financed by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) in the areas of Communication and Information Technologies (ICT), is open until 30 June 2021.
The Exploratory Research Projects (ERPs) are intended to support teams of researchers from Portuguese institutions, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and business partners, to initiate research activities with high potential for impact and strategic relevance for the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program (CMU Portugal).
The total funding available to Portuguese institutions is 400 thousand euros for a maximum of 8 projects and for a maximum period of 12 months. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University will be independently funded by Carnegie Mellon University's CMU Portugal Program at a level similar to that of the Portuguese team.
