Projects - R&D Projects

The research developed at FCNAUP and the participation of FCNAUP in R&D activities represent strategic profiles of the faculties, given the needs for teaching and education in Nutrition Sciences and societal challenges in the area of Nutrition and Food Sciences.

R&D Projects

Synergies resulting from the collaboration in teaching with other Organic Units of U.Porto and other Universities are promoted to develop and prepare joint research projects, such as Best-ReMaP, FRESAN or AGRIFOOD, or projects with industry, such as cLabel+.
