Following an outstanding scientific and cultural tradition inherited from its prior institutions, Universidade de Lisboa was created in July 2013, as a result of the merger of Universidade Técnica de Lisboa and Universidade de Lisboa (tracing its origins to the establishment of the Portuguese University in 1290). Universidade de Lisboa has 18 schools and over 100 research units, around 50,000 students, 4.000 lecturers, 2.500 non-academic staff and 400 degree courses.

Teaching, research, science, technology and innovation are the core business of Universidade de Lisboa. We aim to enhance our position as a “reference university”, not only on a nation-wide level, but also across Europe.

Universidade de Lisboa awards 1st cycle and 2nd cycle degrees, as well as 3rd cycle Degrees (Doctor) and the title of “Agregado”. It also has alternative offerings, such as programmers for continuing education, postgraduate studies and specialization courses aimed at meeting the training demands of emerging labour markets, at boosting economic competitiveness and promoting innovation.

The Universidade de Lisboa also comprises the European Institute of the Faculty of Law, which has provided post-graduate courses as well as seminars and conferences, for the past 20 years, encompassing all the relevant domains of EU integration. The European Institute of the Faculty of Law has played a key role in the dissemination of EU studies throughout Portugal.

The grants listed in the table below do not comprise all the funding received by the 18 schools of the Universidade de Lisboa in the past three years, as they are independent legal independent entities, according to National Law, able to participate autonomously in the Research and Innovation funding programmes.

Faulty of Human Kinetics is a unit of the largest university in Portugal in terms of research funding and expenditure (EUR 800 k€ in 2013), and is a charter member of League of European Research Universities (LERU).
