The Research Opportunities Programme for Excelling Students (ROPES) of Departamento de Informática da Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa is an initiative of the Department fostering the early integration of Bachelor and Master students in research activities.
The programme is stimulated by a regular offering of scholarships for our Bachelor and Master students under the supervision of the Department's faculty, having a typical duration of 1 or 2 semesters. Some of the activities may be financially supported, specifically those ones associated with the Departament's scholarship programme.
The programme is supported on the proposal and public announcement of research activities adequate to the level of knwoledge acquired at Department's courses of studies. The candidates selection is made via public contest or by mutual agreement between students and supervisors. The ROPES programme is permanently open.
