Message from FLAD’s president

Vasco Rato, presidente da Fundação Welcome to the official website of the Luso-American Development Foundation. Here you will find all the information you need about this private and financially independent Portuguese institution, originally founded by the Portuguese state in 1985.

Transparency is important to us, and this is why you will be able to access annual reports and financials, information about FLAD programs and scholarships, as well as documents and news articles about a wide range of activities.

This site is interactive. We made it easier for you to send us your questions, so that we can answer them as quickly as possible.

Some of the content you will find on this website include Culture, Science, Education, Economy, Environmental Issues or Energy Security, always with a particular focus on the Azores.  The site aims to fulfill FLAD’s main goal: to contribute to the economic and social development of the country by cooperating with the United States.

We thank you for your visit.

Vasco Rato
