The Centre for Organisational and Social Studies of the Polytechnic of Porto (CEOS.PP) develops and promotes digital solutions that ultimately help build high functioning organisations in this digitally enhanced era. This is our aim, as we carry out R&D projects and develop multidisciplinary and innovative activities that range from research to specialized services provided for the community, as well as advanced training programmes.
We are currently accredited by FCT in Digital Services – Social, Cultural, Economic or of Public Administration, furthering our goal to be a very active contributor towards scientific, corporate and educational growth.
We strive to become a national reference in digital services performance, as we continue to carry out high quality research in the fields of Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Marketing, Communications, Human Resources, Social Economics, Information & Technology Systems, as well as in Corporate, Social and Educational Analytics.
Our knowledge and know-how builds on a team of researchers with expertise in these fields of interest, and as we further increase our partnerships, It is our ambition to provide improved outputs not only for the R&D community but for society at large.
CEOS.PP is headquarted at ISCAP, the Porto Accounting and Business School, the second oldest educational institution in P.Porto (Polytechnic Institute of Porto). We are therefore a very proud part of a much larger community of around 22.000 people who study, teach, research and work daily in the P.Porto universe.
At CEOS.PP we seek to further improve the quality of our R&D outputs. In order to do so, our strategic planning focuses on developing competitive research through national and international financial support such as H2020 / Horizon Europe, FCT SAICT, Norte 2020, EEA & Norway Grants and ERASMUS+, among others. We are hence able, through our research projects, to transfer knowledge to a specific set of stakeholders facilitating governance, decision making and digital services enhancement. We also produce research that supports ISCAP'S educational diversed programmes.
