Since January 2011, InBIO has been recognized as an ASSOCIATE LABORATORY.
Granted by the Ministry of Education and Science, the status of Associate Laboratory is conferred to PUBLIC OR NON-PROFIT PRIVATE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH UNITS “selected to COLLABORATE IN SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES WITHIN THE GOVERNMENT’S SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY POLICY, including advising the design of programmes and policies” (Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology – FCT).
There are currently 26 ASSOCIATE LABORATORIES IN PORTUGAL. All these research units are required to consistently demonstrate their ability to develop top class research at national and international levels.
