The 'URSI Portugal Research Prize' was created by the Portuguese Committee of URSI, sponsored by ANACOM, with the aim of stimulating creativity and rigour in scientific research work in Portugal, through the attribution of a prize to the best work of research carried out in Portugal in the field of radio sciences.
The prize was awarded during the 16th Congress of the Portuguese Committee of URSI, which this year had as its theme ''Quantum communications: what future?''
