CIBIO-InBIO has been strongly reinforced by three Invited Chairs in Biodiversity, which are part of a program launched by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) early in 2008. These Chairs are funded in 75% by private companies and 25% by FCT. CIBIO-InBIO was the first Portuguese research unit that was able to install one of these positions and to attract the necessary funding.

 

 


 

 


Four Invited Chairs in Biodiversity have been secured and implemented since 2008: DELTA Chair Chair, REFER, EDP Chair and REN Chair. Additional Chairs with major Portuguese companies from different sectors are currently under negotiation.

These Invited Chairs present an invaluable contribution to:

top class research in the field of biodiversity;

knowledge transfer to companies;

training of researchers and students, in particular post-graduate students;

training industry professionals;

promoting scientific culture in its particular research area.
