The BYTPhD program provides the opportunity for talented Portuguese and / or foreign junior researchers to obtain a doctorate by doing innovative and exciting work under excellent research conditions in CIIMAR’s interdisciplinary research areas in close collaboration with the University of Porto.
BYT started with an undergraduate program in October 2014 with the attribution of 6 fellowships to students from Biology, Aquatic Sciences and Biochemistry bachelor courses offered by University of Porto.
The undergraduate BYT program runs across numerous degrees at the University of Porto. In previous editions we had the participation of students who were attending degrees in Biology, Biochemistry, Aquatic Sciences, Environmental Sciences and Technologies, Bioengineering, Nutrition Sciences and Environmental Engineering.
In previous editions of the BYT program, a total of five prizes were awarded to students who presented the best research projects. These awards provided the dissemination of the work to the scientific and / or business community through participation in an international congress, or in training courses and workshops for advanced scientific training.
The edition of the BYT 2019/2020 program had the participation of a total of 19 undergraduate and graduate students, having reached the highest number of students attending the BYT program.
After the 1st edition of the BYT+ program with the participation of 12 master students, in 2020 the second edition was launched again with the support of Fundação Amadeu Dias.
With the success of the BYT and BYT+ programs and the support of the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology, CIIMAR launched the BYTPhD program in 2020, which has been a unique opportunity for young researchers interested in developing their PhD project integrated in the CIIMAR research lines.
