The statistical information related to the Portuguese participation in the Seventh Framework Programme (2007-2011) was recently made available by GPPQ/FCT – Gabinete de Promoção do Programa-Quadro de I&DT and reveals that, among the 26 Associate Laboratories established by FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, the LAO is the most successful in terms of number of contracts (70) and funding (22.837.403€). These 70 contracts include 34 Marie Curie grants, 22 Cooperation projects (Health, KBBE, ICT), 8 Capacities contracts (Infra, SME, SiS) and 6 ERC grants.
