The RoboCup Portuguese Committee aims at promoting the RoboCup initiative in Portugal. Portugal is one of the most represented countries in RoboCup, and has a tradition of organizing Robotics competitions that dates back to 1995, including the organization of RoboCup 2004. Also, a considerable number of Portuguese research institutions and universities have groups working in Robotics.
