Collaborative Laboratories

NOVA University Lisbon has embraced the governmental initiative to create Collaborative Laboratories (CoLABs), structures that join companies, universities, technological centres, and other institutions to implement research and innovation agendas aligned with market and societal demands, promoting the creation of highly qualified jobs.
