On October 26, the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto (FPCEUP) hosted Mirjana Stanojevic from Masaryk University (Czech Republic), through the Research Support Centre (CRIA), as part of a Staff Exchange organised by the Research and Projects Service of the University of Porto between October 23 and 27, 2023.

The interaction with CRIA was organised with a view to discussing various topics, including:

  • Project management in the Social Sciences and Humanities, and Education areas (pre-award and post-award):

Social academic institutions in the coordination of consortia for Horizon Europe applications: challenges and opportunities;

Integration of social academic institutions in higher education competitions: our experience outside our field;

Educational panorama: broad perspectives;

HR in projects: incentives and funding for researchers.

  • Sharing good practices in international project management:

Internal audit systems during the life of projects.

We thank her for sharing the time and experience during her visit to Portugal, and we hope that this meeting will expand the sharing of experiences and new future collaborations, with an emphasis on the role of the Social Sciences and Humanities.
