The CMU Portugal Program organizes inRes, an international immersion program for very early stage entrepreneurial teams working in ICT, in Portugal, aiming at accelerating and strengthening the development of their startup projects.
 

Eligibility

Portuguese citizens or citizens of other countries who hold permanent resident status in Portugal, holding a master degree, are eligible to apply to inRes. Only projects that are not yet established regularly selling products/services may apply.

inRes Support

There are no fees for participation in any of the activities of the inRes initiative. The CMU Portugal Program expects to support each participant with the plane trips between Portugal, Pittsburgh and Silicon Valley, and to cover living expenses during the seven weeks stay. 

Although each inRes team member may choose where to live, there are several housing options that are offered at a reduced Carnegie Mellon University rate. There are also several boarding houses, which may be available. In order to have access to the Carnegie Mellon University rates, the inRes team members must indicate that they are visiting on behalf of Carnegie Mellon University. 

The decisions to start and to keep running inRes, as well as the actual number of admitted teams, will depend on the availability of funds, the number and quality of the submitted proposals, and the actual number of teams and individuals that register, and are committed to, and actively participating in, the initiative at any time. 

Confidentiality

The organization of inRes has no commercial or for profit goals. The participation of inRes and entrepreneurial teams in this initiative requires the sharing of technologies and know-how created and owned by the participants and/or their institutions, which are a critical asset for the future development of their startups. Because the context of the initiative requires the exchange of restricted and/or non-public information between the participants, there is a need to protect the confidentiality of that information, which will be guaranteed by a non-disclosure agreement, signed by the participants and the institution that manages the CMU Portugal Program in Portugal.

Requirements for running the initiative

The decisions to start and to keep running inRes, as well as the actual number of admitted teams, will depend on the availability of funds, the number and quality of the submitted proposals, and the actual number of teams and individuals that register, and are committed to, and actively participating in, the initiative at any time.
