The UNINOVA (Institute for the Development of New Tecnologies) is a non-profit University-Enterprise association, that was formed in 1986 by the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the New University of Lisbon (FCT-UNL), the Portuguese Industrial Association (AIP), the Professional Training and Employment Institute (IEFP), a financial holding (IPE) and other 30 companies.

The main theme of UNINOVA is to pursue scientific research, technical development, high level training and the creation of new technological innovation centers and small size industries. UNINOVA's facilities are located at the campus of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology (Quinta da Torre).

All those structures were totally financed by industrial partners and portuguese institutions for R&D promotion and by the government itself, namely on the behalf of the PEDIP Program (Specific Program for the Development of Portuguese Industry).
