The "Grupo de Reação e Análises Químicas" (GRAQ) was founded in January 1999 as a research group of the "Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto" (ISEP). GRAQ has scientific and financial autonomy and is integrated in the "Centro de Química da Universidade do Porto" (CEQUP). Since November 2001 GRAQ is also a part of the "Rede de Química e Tecnologia" (REQUIMTE). REQUIMTE is the largest network in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering established in Portugal and is recognized as the "Laboratório Associado para a Química Verde" by the Portuguese Ministry of Science and Higher Education. After the reorganisation of the I&D units, GRAQ is one of the “Environmental Science and Health” groups.
