  • Centre for Research in Applied Communication, Culture, and New Technologies (CICANT)

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 Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias. 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.
CICANT distinguishes itself via its state of the art technical facilities and the highly applied nature of its research and knowledge transfer oriented teaching and learning activities. The unit’s main objective include attracting young researchers, fostering the publication of excellent scientific works and promoting the development and internationalisation of Communication and Information Sciences in Portugal, in Europe and in all the Portuguese speaking countries.

Faculdade de Belas-Artes da Universidade de Lisboa (FBAUL)

The Faculdade de Belas-Artes da Universidade de Lisboa, commonly known as Belas-Artes, is the oldest College of Fine Arts in Portugal. Founded in 1836 as a fine art academy, it is now established as a contemporary art and design school with a permanent and ongoing concern of playing an active role in today’s culture.

Its location, in the city’s historical centre – the Convento de São Francisco in Chiado, a zone of cultural affirmation since the 19th Century – propels the School’s aim of implementing artistic and research skills that are adequate to meet the current challenges of global knowledge. The focus at Belas Artes is both the artistic creation and the development of all stages of project in the field of design. In order to do so, the School places great emphasis on teaching, combining practical development of projects with intensive theoretical training in history of art and design, aesthetics and cultural studies. Currently, the School has close to 1700 students enrolled, and a third of these students attend postgraduate courses, offering degrees in the areas of Painting, Sculpture, Industrial Design, Graphic Design and New Media Art, as well as History and Science of the Arts and Cultural Heritage, Museology, Curatorship, Art Education and Drawing both at undergraduate and post-graduate level. As a result, Belas Artes links theory and practice, past and present, specificity and cultural integration.
