The Association of Grant-holders Researchers in Portugal.

Established in 2003, ABIC - Associação dos Bolseiros de Investigação Científica is the Portuguese Association of Grant-holders Researchers and a member of Eurodoc, the European federation of national organisations of young researchers.

ABIC represents early stage researchers as PhD students, and post-doc fellows as well as other researchers who are also grant-holders.
Among its main actions, the Association urge the government to open positions available at the public sector and not use grant-holders researchers as cheap labour in Portugal.

One of the most active ABIC on-line resources is the "Forum dos Bolseiros"  (Grant-holders Forum) where you will find for example, a section especially dedicated to ads for jobs and scholarships. Furthermore, a guide for grant-holders is also at your disposal.

The information on the ABIC’s website is only available in Portuguese. However, you can access from the same website, to an english information published on Wikipedia.
