Support academic research

Apoie a investigação científica da Universidade do Porto

The world is changing at a rapid speed: our ecosystems, the global economy, our climate, technology, society, etc. Humankind's ability to adapt to these changes (and make the best of them) will depend on how intelligent we can be, how we work and how reliable our information is.

The University of Porto (U.Porto) is determined to be at the forefront of meeting these challenges. We have always attracted the most talented students and our rigorous academic environment has always allowed them to reach their potential. And we have always been at the forefront of some of the most extraordinary research in the world.

But the way higher education is funded has changed significantly over the years and, like many Universities, U.Porto is under constant pressure to produce more with less. That is why we ask our ALUMNI to contribute, through academic sponsorship, enabling us to perform our role in this accelerated transformation of the world, for the benefit of all, as seen in this generous example.

By becoming a patron of U.Porto, or one of its schools, you won't simply be contributing to bettering the quality of the University. You will be expressing your pride in having been our student.

Would you like to join the friends of U.Porto? Contact our U.Porto ALUMNI Office and learn how you can help with our academic sponsorship activities.
