The research that is conducted through the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program (CMU Portugal) spans the broad area of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), with a particular focus on the areas that have a direct impact on the data economy, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration between industry and academia across different levels of the “big data” software stack. This includes research topics spanning from the technologies for processing large-scale data sets, to the artificial intelligence techniques that enable extracting value from data, or to the sociotechnical systems and applications that are catalyzed through these techniques.

Since the CMU Portugal Program was created over a decade ago, eight  calls for research projects  were opened and 55 projects were supported, corresponding to a public investment of €12.4 million euros.

The CMU Portugal Program is currently supporting 12 Entrepreneurial Research Initiatives (ERIs)  and 8 Exploratory Research Projects (ERPs), bringing together a large community, in Portugal and at Carnegie Mellon, of industry and academic partners, faculty, researchers, industry experts, and Ph.D. and Master students.
