International open call to be launched by the University of the Azores, with the support of FLAD, the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) and the Regional Government of the Azores.

For three years, we will support the creation of three chairs, with a special focus on the areas of the Atlantic agenda:

  • Atlantic Interactions and Space;
  • Digital Transformation and Advanced Computing;
  • Innovation for a Sustainable Economy.

The Azores are decisive in the study of space, atmosphere, climate change, and the Atlantic, due to the size of the archipelago, its island dispersion and the strategic geographical location of the Azores.

FLAD Azores Chairs aims to capture qualified human resources for the development of research and advanced training activities at the University of the Azores. This initiative also has the collaboration of the University of Massachusetts of Lowell.

We, therefore, want to strengthen the investment in scientific research in our Azorean “test laboratory”, and the contribution that may arise, both for the development of Portugal and for the strengthening of the transatlantic tie.

The open call for the selection of the professor responsible for the chair “Atlantic Interactions and Space” will be launched very soon.

See you soon!
