Profile Information

Universidade NOVA de Lisboa hosts 42 Research and Development Units (R&D Units), 15 of which are research partnerships between NOVA and other national institutions. In 2013, the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FC&T) evaluated 75% of the R&D Units with “Exceptional”, “Excellent” or “Very Good”. Research at NOVA has been growing and developing, both at quantitative and qualitative levels. NOVA is responsible for approximately 10% of the national research papers indexed to the Web of Science.

NOVA is the Portuguese University with the best performance (scores/FTE) in the first two years of HORIZON 2020. It is worth highlighting that, since the launch of the European Research Council (ERC) Grants programme in 2009, NOVA’s researchers were awarded a total of 10 grants, placing NOVA as one of the top national institutions.

The improved performance of NOVA in terms of research can be seen in the international rankings’ scores and positioning. The good results achieved in the main rankings of Universities with less than 50 years, have granted NOVA the inclusion in YERUN (Young European Research Universities Network).
