UT Austin | Portugal « back to Partners


The UT Austin | Portugal International Collaboratory for Emerging Technologies or CoLab is a partnership between the Science and Technology Foundation of Portugal (FCT) and the University of Texas at Austin, in conjunction with several Portuguese universities. Launched in 2007, the goal of this project is to expand the presence of advanced digital media through educational and research exchange. Education and research take place in three different program areas, digital media, advanced computing, and mathematics.

Each of these program areas approach advanced digital media from the perspective of their specific competencies, whether that's computation, modelling, or creative production.
This partnership offers Portuguese students and researchers a variety of educational and funding opportunities including PhD and postdoctoral funding for study in Austin, research grants for collaborative projects, and intensive courses offered in Portugal.
