CICANT – The Centre for Research in Applied Communication, Culture, and New Technologies  results from the combined efforts of faculty of the School of Communication, Architecture, Arts and Information Technologies (ECATI) of Lusófona University towards the goal of creating a unit which allows for the integration and harnessing of the research activities conducted within it.
