Aware of the importance of encouraging ULisboa researchers and Research Units to attract external funding, the Rectory supports training and capacity building, the preparation of applications and project management.
Training and capacity building
The incentive and support of applications to competitive programmes, through the strengthening of dissemination actions and capacity building and support mechanisms, allows the promotion of competitiveness and performance, in addition to capturing and retaining the best national and international talent. ULisboa has promoted regular training actions aimed at individual candidates for ERC grants, in addition to courses for teams applying for Horizon Europe collaborative projects, in conjunction with Enspire Science, a specialist in training for attracting European research funding.
The 3rd edition of the ULisboa Online Course "ERC Beyond" has recently taken place, in which the number of applications from researchers associated with the 18 ULisboa Schools largely exceeded the number of vacancies. In June 2023, the 4th edition of the Online Course "ERC Beyond" at ULisboa will take place.
In September 2022, it is time for the 1st edition of the Online Course "Horizon Europe".
