Portugal joined EATRIS in May 2018 aiming to foster translational research on a national level. Participation in EATRIS facilitates the integration of national hospitals and research institutes in joint research projects and grant applications.
The short- to mid-term benefits are expected in capacity building, integration of best practices and their promotion with peers, together with the increase to the provision of scientific and technological services.
