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 provided to our community (professors, students, researchers and university staff). FCCN is also involved in several national and international projects.
