The PhD program MAP-Tele was selected in the competition for funding from the Foundation for Science and Technology, IP (FCT, IP), having been awarded 7 PhD scholarships. Under that tender the Scientific Committee is tasked to select students who will benefit from the scholarships funded by FCT, IP. The grants will be awarded directly by FCT to the student.
