Research infrastructures

In 2013, FCT opened a call for research infrastructures to be included in the National Roadmap of Research Infrastructures of Strategic Relevance.

This call aimed at assessing the existing research infrastructures, identifying national priority areas and introducing Portugal into the group of European countries who have produced their own national roadmaps in alignment with the European Strategic Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI). 

In total, 40 infrastructures in all scientific domains were integrated in the Portuguese Roadmap, of which 23 are aligned with ESFRI.

Four research structures of the IGC were selected to be included in the National Roadmap of Research Infrastructures: 

  • Portuguese Biological Data Network (coordinated by José Pereira-Leal, IGC)
  • PPBI: Portuguese Platform of BioImaging (coordinated by Paula Sampaio, Instituto de Biologia Molecular e Celular)
  • GenomePT: National Facility for Genome Sequencing and Analysis (coordinated by Manuel Santos, University of Aveiro)
  • CONGENTO: Consortium of Genetically Tractable Organisms (coordinated by Rui Costa, Champalimaud Foundation).
