There will be a new competition to fund research projects in 2024, with FCT guarantees Scientists

The start of the new competition to finance scientific research projects in Portugal has been delayed. It opened on the Friday before Christmas, with a larger cash pie, but after a year without the FCT opening that line of funding. The money for this competition (which refers to 2023) is expected to reach scientists' pockets only in the second half of 2024, so some have estimated that there will not be another competition this year – breaking the annual funding pace called for by the Ministry of Science. Technology and Higher Education (MCTES). However, the FCT ensures that a new competition is scheduled to open at the end of 2024.
