Founded in 1290, the University of Coimbra (UC) is the oldest Portuguese university and one of the oldest in the world. UC is nowadays a vibrant academy and an indisputable reference in higher education and research in Portugal and in Europe, due to the quality of the courses taught at its eight Faculties and to its excellence in the promotion of science and technology advances in 46 research units integrated in the University. With more than 1,500 researchers and professors, UC has extensive experience in research programs with competitive research funding, particularly in European Commission (EC) framework programs for research, in several areas including sciences, engineering, health, justice and home affairs, international cooperation, and mobility. In FP7, UC participated in 59 projects and was the coordinator in 10 of them. Since the beginning of H2020, UC has participated in 20 project applications that were approved for funding, being the coordinator in 5 of them.
The Institute of Systems and Robotics - University of Coimbra (ISR-UC) is a research unit integrated in UC whose overall goal is to develop excellent research in various areas of science and technology, with emphasis on intelligent systems and robotics. The ISR-UC has participated in over a dozen European projects funded by EC. The Artificial Perception for Intelligent Systems and Robotics (AP4ISR) team of ISR-UC has participated in several EC-funded projects, both in FP6 (projects BACS and IRPS), FP7 (projects Prometheus, HANDLE, and Social Robot), and H2020 (project GrowMeUp) framework programmes. The AP4ISR team has been doing research in collaboration with important European players in excellence research from Universities, research institutions, and companies (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ap.isr.uc.pt_-3Fw-3Dpartners&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rStC00sfV_qVWqlcnmGhKrRoTMim5rLso-FTzVW2NfNyo&m=_tjGdYzEKhx_wAXsKLH8cLECeYDqOIhK3qRUzzuYVCk&s=9oahDsEkZeXF17-MHUhZSkjFbjhjQGNhjfpsrlnZ8HY&e=), mostly from Europe.
