Description The Laboratório Nacional de Engenharia Civil – LNEC (National Laboratory for Civil Engineering) is a state owned research and development (R&D) institution founded in 1946. It works in the various domains of civil engineering, giving it a unique multidisciplinary perspective in this field. The main goals of the LNEC are to carry out innovative research and development and to contribute to the best practices in civil engineering. LNEC also plays a key role in advising the government in technical and scientific matters of civil engineering, as an unbiased and independent body. The Laboratory has, at present, 600 staff, of which 45% hold a university degree and 26% are researchers with a Phd or equivalent qualification. It also has about 120 science research fellows with grants awarded by LNEC. Around 46% of the LNEC's annual budget is funded from its own revenue through scientific and technology contracts, with the balance coming from the National Budget and other sources of income.
