University Lusófona/Universidade Lusófona

 

Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias (ULHT) is the largest private university in Lisbon. The name comes from the word Lusofonia, which names all the Portuguese speaking countries and their common linguistic and cultural background. It is a university where cultures and nationalities come together. The University assumes itself as the leading institution responsible for the development of these physical and cultural spacesof the Portuguese-speaking world of 250 million inhabitants believes that the best way one can become a better individual is through education.

Latest Research

ummOur scientific repository holds the most recent work. COPELABS follows a pre-print open policy.

SITI - Informatics Systems and Technologies Group

SITI w400SITI is focused upon user-centric trends that are emerging in several fields of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), OSI Layers 2 and 3. As in other grassroots movements, the user will have an active say concerning services provided and consequently, concerning the techno-social environment that surrounds him/her.

CTIP - Technology Intensive Psychology Group

CTIP w400This group is based (i.e. integrated members) on a core of scientifically active researchers from the former CEPCA (Pedro Gamito, Jorge Oliveira, Rodrigo Brito, Paulo Lopes, and Ana Loureiro) 2 more recent PhDs (Cristina Camilo and Bárbara Gonzalez). Note, however, that the CEPCA team (team size, funding and indicators included in 5.) changed substantially since 2008, when it had 8 PhDs (of which only PG remains) and 5 groups. In 2011-13 the team grew to 14 integrated PhDs in 2-3 groups. By 2013, however, it was clear that the bulk of CEPCA output of international level (13 of the 14 indicators in table 5.) was the responsibility of the neurocognitive/cyber therapy-focused group, with only 3 PhD and 2 non-PhD members (PI: PG). The inevitable consolidation of CEPCA around this core group pointed to the desirability of joining forces with an informatics team – SITILABS – to create COPELABS as an interdisciplinary R&D unit (see Description of the R&D unit).
