Early Bird Projects 2014 

The Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program is an education, research, and innovation platform that connects Portuguese research institutions, universities and companies in cooperation with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The partnership was launched in 2006 to create new knowledge in key focused areas of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) by means of cutting-edge research, world-class graduate education, and a close connection with Portuguese industry, aiming at placing Portugal at the forefront of science and innovation. In order to support the emergence of new high-impact initiatives within its scope, the Program is establishing a line of funding for Early Bird Projects. 

_______

Early Bird Projects are designed to assist small teams of researchers from Portuguese institutions, Carnegie Mellon University and industry partners, to jumpstart high-impact potential activities of strategic relevance for the Program.
