The Interdisciplinary Research Centre for Education and Development (CeiED) is a R&D Unit established at Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias (ULHT) in the research fields of Education, Territory, Memory Studies and Human Development. It originates from the Centre for Studies and Intervention in Education and Training (CeiEF) with which, after several years of joint projects, in early 2013 were associated researchers in the areas of Geography, Museology and Urbanism from the Territory, Culture and Development Research Centre (TERCUD), also a R&D Unit of ULHT.
The CeiED aims to achieve the following three main objectives: (i) to conduct high-quality scientific research in Education, Territory, Memory Studies, and Human Development that is both technologically and socially relevant; (ii) to ensure support to advanced training conducive to academic degrees (doctoral, master and bachelor); and (iii) to promote the provision of outreach community services, including enhancement of initial, continuous, specialist and postgraduate training of teachers and other professional educators, as well in different dimensions of knowledge and education in their interaction with memory studies and territoriality.
The Centre for Research in Applied Communication, Culture, and New Technologies (CICANT) is an innovative project, designed to develop research activities in an interdisciplinary way around a confluent scientific, educational and experimental space at the cross of media, arts, culture and technologies. CICANT results from the combined efforts of all teachers in the School of Communication, Architecture, Arts and Information Technologies (ECATI) at Lusófona University. This unit promotes theoretical and applied research on all its subject areas, particularly focusing on knowledge transfer and exchange with industry and similar centres in Portugal and in Europe.
The Millennium bcp Foundation is a not-for-profit organization established (1991) by Banco Comercial Português, the Foundation emerged as a reflection of the Bank’s culture of social responsibility, which has always taken on board, together with its core activity, a clear commitment to support the development of the communities in which it operates.
The Bank’s growing involvement in the various sectors of society and the increasing influx of requests, has created a need for specialization and greater responsiveness, which integrates naturally into its business strategy.
Within this context, the project took shape to create a suitable structure, with administrative and financial capacity to develop and manage a program of activities aimed at the pursuit of social responsibility.
The activity of the Millennium bcp Foundation, an integral part of the Bank’s policies of social welfare and institutional cultural patronage, is seen as a tool for the creation of value in society in various areas of intervention. In this light, it has sought over time, to concentrate its resources on supporting institutions, organizations and projects that show potential for greater efficiency in the long term.
