What's PERIN Network?

PERIN — Portugal in Europe Research and Innovation Network – has been promoted, since 2019, with the objective of pursuing a national strategy that should double, in 2021-2027, the Portuguese participation in European Union (EU) Programmes compared to 2014-2020, attracting around two billion euros of funding from the EU, as well as tripling the number of mobility students in Higher Education.

PERIN evolves from the “GPPQ-Office for the Promotion of the EU RTD Framework Programme” and expands its action to the Research & Innovation, Erasmus+, Space ad Digital EU funding Programmes.
