What is FCCN
Since 1987, with the support of universities and several national R&D institutions, we have contributed to the internet’s expansion in Portugal. We plan, manage and operate the national NREN, Science, Technology and Society Network (RCTS) – a high-performance network for organizations with higher communication needs. Given its characteristics, RCTS serves as a platform for developing and testing advanced communication applications and services.
We also manage the ‘.pt’ domain registration service, provide services to our community (professors, students, researchers and university staff) and are involved in several national and international projects.
We are an associate member of the Portuguese Foundations Centre.
