LASIGE was invited by Direção Geral do Ensino Superior (DGES, Directorate-General for Higher Education) to participate in the “Study and Research in Portugal” initiative, to support the promotion and dissemination of Portuguese higher education, institutions, and national educational offer.
This international promotion intends to assist higher education institutions attracting international students and researchers, promote Portuguese higher education and facilitate the establishment of partnerships and strategic cooperation, as well as intensify the activities developed abroad in this context.
Our researchers answered to this challenge and shared their experiences. Adriano Serckumecka, a PhD student from Brasil, shared the following (testimony #3):
"I'm Brazilian, professor, and I chose to do my PhD in Portugal aiming at new experiences at academic and professional level. The quality of the teaching/research, which are internationally recognized, was decisive. I opted for the research group LASIGE (FCUL) for my affinity with the research area and for its high scientific level, with top publications and experienced teaching staff. I ended up feeling at home. I will take home with me great friendships, contacts and unforgettable experiences. Thank you Portugal!"
