Erasmus Mundus has granted approval for an innovative Master's Degree program known as Bio.Natural - Chemistry of Natural Bioactives. This cutting-edge two-year international initiative is a collaborative effort involving distinguished institutions, including Lusófona University - COFAC/ULHT (Portugal), Università degli Studi di Siena - UNISI (Italy), Zagreb University - UniZG (Croatia), and Ruđer Bošković Institute - RBI (Croatia). Delivered entirely in English, the program aims to cultivate competitive specialists in natural products chemistry, focusing on the development and commercialization of bioactive products derived from natural sources, with applications in pharmaceuticals, dermocosmetics, medical devices, and dietary supplements.

Projects results are expected to contribute to all of the following expected outcomes:

Hop on Facility

28 September de 2023

The Hop On Facility allows for legal entities from low R&I performing countries to join already selected collaborative R&I actions, subject to the agreement of the respective consortium and provided that legal entities from such countries are not yet participating in it. The scheme aims to improve the inclusiveness of Horizon Europe by involving more research institutions from Widening countries under Horizon Europe Pillar 2 and EIC Pathfinder actions.

We support interregional cooperation projects.

Our projects bring together policy organisations from at least three different countries in the 27 EU member states, Norway and Switzerland. For four years, they learn from each other and work together on a shared policy issue.

FCT is a member of the new co-funded European Partnership THCS - Transforming Health and Care Systems. This partnership aims to coordinate and optimize research and innovation efforts in Europe and its partner countries supporting health and care systems transformation.

Twinning - Horizon Opportunities

28 de setembro de 2023

Twinning proposals should have to clearly outline the scientific strategy for stepping up and stimulating scientific excellence and innovation capacity in a defined area of research and innovation as well as the scientific quality of the partners involved in the twinning exercise. This scientific strategy should include arrangements for formulating new (or ongoing) joint research / innovation project(s) in the scientific area of choice and describe how Twinning will take this research to a new stage, by enlarging its scope and/or the research / innovation partnerships.

After last year's successful edition with plus 200 submissions, this year's iSCSi Organizing Committee looks forward to meeting you in Lisbon at the Radisson Hotel and at Lusófona University from the 4 to the 6 of October 2023.
