The Doctoral Program in Advanced Materials and Processing (AdvaMTech) from Instituto Superior Técnico is funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) with 6 annual doctoral scholarships and it is the responsibility of the Scientific Committee of AdvaMTech to select the students who benefit from the FCT scholarships annually.
70% of all technical innovations are directly or indirectly linked to materials. This percentage has been growing since the 70s and is expected to continue to grow until 2030. Advanced materials have been identified by the European Commission as one of five key technologies for development. The proposed PhD Program in Advanced Materials and Processing is in line with this reality, offering a highly interdisciplinary 3rd cycle, built on the expertise and experience of the research institutions and academic departments involved. The program is in line with doctoral programs of recognized universities and European institutes, providing competitive graduates able to develop their activities anywhere in the world, particularly in Europe. The program will also contribute to promote scientific collaboration between the staff involved, which will result in a strengthening of the Portuguese competitiveness in relation to projects and European R&D networks.
