CEOS.PP is based at Instituto Superior de Contabilidade e Administração do Porto (ISCAP), the second oldest education institution of P.Porto (Polytechnic Institute of Porto) and is part of a wider community of about 22.000 people that daily study, teach and work 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.
