We are a research/educational partnership between several top-rated Portuguese universities, and the Carnegie Mellon University. Students in any of our masters or Ph.D. programs (http://www.cmuportugal.org) take courses from professors in both locations; upon graduation they receive dual degrees. Faculty have interdisciplinary and intercultural research grants opportunities. For more information, please contact us at email@example.com.
Albert Linde, Mariana Oliveira, Tiago Cardoso, and Salomé Azevedo, were the first young Portuguese researchers of the Undergraduate Internships Program, offered by the CMU Portugal Program, that went to CMU to experience an entirely different culture and to participate in state-of-the-art projects. After their return, they see it as a valuable cultural and social experience that they will remember forever.
João Claro, national director of the CMU Portugal, is positively impressed with the support and receptiveness of academia in Portugal and at CMU to this Program, as well as with the strong research experiences these young researchers are bringing to Portugal. "The students typically stay at CMU between eight to twelve weeks and are hosted by a faculty member that guides their immersion according to the work plan submitted during the application process," João Claro explains. "I had the opportunity to read the reports of these four students, and to talk with some of them, and their feedback is enriching," says João Claro adding that "we should look at UIP as a seed for collaboration that can flourish according to the willingness and research interests of all parties involved."
1st Innovation in Aeronautics Roundtable: Fostering Global Supply Networks for the Aeronautics Industry in Portugal more
The Innovation in Aeronautics Roundtables is a series of debates designed with the purpose to foster the exchange of ideas between different players on critical issues on aeronautical development. The goal is to discuss research results and directions using complementary viewpoints from industrial partners, in order to allow the development of a comprehensive perspective on the opportunities and challenges faced by the aeronautics. More specifically, issues regarding the uncertainty in which the industry is expected to develop, fostering a global perspective in the discussion, and addressing the critical issues of skills development in and for the industry are expected to be discussed.
These roundtables are organized in the scope of the Entrepreneurial Research Initiative - Innovation Dynamics in Aeronautics and Embraer in Évora: Towards a Distributed Platform for Entrepreneurial Initiatives, New Employment and Skills Development -, of the CMU Portugal Program, funded by FCT.
