Collaboration and Knowledge Services

FCCN provides several services for collaboration, knowledge and distance learning, which are available to all institutions connected  to RCTS (Rede Ciência Tecnologia e Sociedade). These services can be extremely important in the current context of the pandemic caused by Covid-19, as tools that facilitate communication processes between teachers, researchers and students belonging to higher education institutions, public entities, associated laboratories and state laboratories.


Colibri is a collaboration service that allows remote meetings between two or more participants from the academic and scientific community, allowing meetings, group work, classes and tutorials to be conducted over the internet.
