FCT and LIP agreed to promote a program of PhD grants in high energy physics and related scientific
and technological domains relevant for the Portuguese participation at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, CERN and/or the corresponding transfer of knowledge to society.
Two domains will be considered:
1) Particle and Astroparticle Physics and associated scientific domains;
2) Technologies associated to the Portuguese participation at CERN and their transfer to
The maximum number of grants to be awarded in the present call will be seven, with four with
priority to the first domain and three with priority to the second domain. The granting of the scholarship will depend on the receipt of all required documents and is subject to the availability of FCT funding.
