The Centre for Research in Applied Communication, Culture, and New Technologies (CICANT) results from the combined efforts of Lusófona University (Lisbon and Porto) researchers in the field towards the goal of creating an autonomous research unit which will allow for the integration and harnessing of the research activities conducted within the centre. It promotes theoretical and applied research at the cross of media, society, literacies, arts, culture and technologies. CICANT distinguishes itself due to the solid theoretical and applied nature of its research and knowledge transfer activities oriented to teaching and research activities.

CICANT is geared towards innovative and interdisciplinary research in its two main subject areas: Media, Society and Literacies (MSL) and Media Arts, Creative Industries and Technologies (MACIT).
