About Us

NOVA Tax Research Lab is a knowledge centre established in the CEDIS – Research & Development Centre on Law and Society, the Research Unit of NOVA School of Law, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. CEDIS is funded by FCT, I.P. (Foundation for Science and Technology, Public Institute), through national funds from the Portuguese Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education, under projects UIDB/00714/2020 and UIDP/00714/2020.

It stemmed from the need for academic reflection and intervention on the ongoing (re)evolution of the tax systems and on the new challenges imposed on tax administrations and taxpayers.

It is aimed to bring taxation topics closer to the community, design impactful training, and promote innovative and multidisciplinary research on national and international issues related to taxation. You can find our by-laws here (in Portuguese).


NOVA Tax Research Lab’s mission is to promote research and activities concerned with the latest challenges of taxation from Portuguese, European and International perspectives.

In addition to developing research, publications and other technical analysis, NOVA Tax Research Lab also designs training and workshops and organizes conferences and talks.

NOVA Tax Research Lab aims to be the bridge between the academy, private and public sectors, as well as civil society, for a coherent discussion of tax challenges.
