Abstract: The Tropical Research Institute (IICT) promotes tropical knowledge by pursuing interdisciplinary research of relevance to countries in tropical regions. It has a special mandate towards the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP), whose members are Brazil, East Timor, Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Guinee-Bissau, Sao Tome and Principe and Portugal. In 1983 IICT became a state laboratory under the supervision of the Minister for Science, Technology and Higher Education.
