CIC.Digital has as its core objective the development and dissemination of research, advanced training and consultation in the areas of Media Studies, Communication and Information Sciences, and Culture at national and international levels, focusing on cooperation with Europe and the Lusophone space. The CIC.Digital project corresponds to an enlargement of the research activities of its foundational members through a significant widening of their impact possibilities, both in national and international terms. The fulfillment of such possibilities constitutes the unit’s first major goal.
The cooperation is structured in two aspects: internationalization (through protocols and networks with other universities and research centers) and cooperation with companies. Thus giving visibility to the knowledge developed and performing knowledge transfer to society.
