The statute of associate laboratory

The statute of associate laboratory is granted by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education to research institutions that are subject to an assessment and selection process, and assist the government on scientific areas when designing public policies.

Associate laboratories usually consist of research units or institutes from different universities. Técnico is proud to be part of seven Associate Laboratories, all of which combining three key aspects:

  • a strategic research agenda;
  • research excellence;
  • the necessary dimension to address research challenges with a global dimension.
