    Three dimensional motion analysis for monitoring of rehabilitation and high performance training of the equine athlete.

    The aims of his project is validate several rehabilitation techniques for horses through the kinematic three – dimensional analysis of their locomotion with the vicon system. The population of this study are horses with previous clinical diagnosis that are admitted on rehabilitation center, and a specific protocol for musculoskeletal pathologies diagnosed is applied to them. Biomechanical evaluation is performed prior to initiating the protocols, throughout its execution and at the end of it.

    Aural Experience, Territory, and Community

    Aural Experience, Territory, and Community

    Based on the aural experience in two parishes of the municipality of Lisbon, Alvalade and Belém, we intend to draw the relationship of the communities with their neighbourhood. Through dialogues with its inhabitants, with the sound and visual mapping of neighbourhoods, we want to understand what areas exist or are necessary for a greater participation or inclusion of urban life; what aspects of the sensitive culture have deteriorated or remain as agglutinators of social life; and what can be done, at the level of acoustic ecology, to maintain an aural experience that brings well-being and identity to the community. With this project, whose objectives could be applied to other neighbourhoods in the city, we intend to unite an ancestral sensitive culture to the notions of time, space, community and renewed identity, in part, by the use of reproduction technologies. The works to be developed will be included online in the website Lisbon Sound Map

    MigratED

    MigratED

    O projetoMigratED_migrações, direitos humanos e educação (2018-2020) – no original Migrations and human rights enhanced through technology in EDucation – pretende levar a cabo uma campanha de sensibilização para a diversidade cultural e a inclusão social. Este é um projecto europeu que envolve nove parceiros espalhados por cinco países. Em Portugal, a 4Change e a Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias são os promotores do projecto que envolverá professores, formadores e alunos, migrantes e refugiados, cidadãos e comunidades.

    Temos assistido na Europa a uma vaga crescente de movimentos incitadores de violência e ataques morais contra os migrantes bem como a uma progressiva exclusão de minorias. Neste processo, as plataformas digitais são, muitas vezes, disseminadoras de informação falsa, podendo dar origem a atos violentos e crimes de ódio.

    Com o objetivo de promover uma contra-narrativa que defenda a importância e o respeito pelos direitos humanos, o projeto MigratED foi lançado simultaneamente em Itália, Grécia, Portugal, Eslovénia e Chipre numa parceria com oito organizações europeias – um consórcio liderado pela ONG italiana GVC.

    MigratED pretende envolver professores e formadores de escolas e instituições da região de Lisboa no esforço de consciencialização geral e interpessoal, aliando os media tradicionais aos digitais e tendo como ferramentas principais o “vídeo participativo” e o trabalho entre pares dos participantes mais jovens.
