Introducing CICANT

The Centre for Research in Applied Communication, Culture, and New Technologies is one of four poles from CIC.Digital and results from the combined efforts of all teachers in the School of Communication, Architecture, Arts and Information Technologies towards the goal of creating an autonomous research unit which will allow for the integration and harnessing of all the research activities conducted within the school.

Our Research

This unit promotes theoretical and applied research on all its subject areas, particularly focusing on knowledge transfer and exchange with industry and similar centres in Portugal and in Europe. CICANT aims to bring together theoretical and applied research on technology, society and contemporary subjectivity. Futher, one of primary goals is to create a common space that can nourish interdisciplinary research between the arts, social sciences and information technologies.
