Portugal-France Bilateral Cooperation 2023: Joint Call under the Pessoa Program

The agreement for scientific and technological cooperation between Portugal and France, established in 2004, envisions both countries establishing a program aimed at promoting collaboration between teachers and researchers, including young researchers in higher education institutions and related research institutions in Portugal and France.

One of the intended objectives is to foster exchange actions among researchers by supporting their mobility within the scope of international projects.

The projects will have a maximum duration of 24 months, with annual renewals possible. The annual funding from FCT per project is €2,000.

Applications should be prepared jointly by the responsible researchers from both countries and submitted to the implementing bodies of the Agreement. Thus, the Portuguese team should submit their application to FCT, and the foreign team to the relevant organization in their country.

The application to be submitted to FCT should be submitted through the application submission portal by 17:00 on June 26, 2023, Lisbon time.
