"It is not enough to make "for", it is necessary to do "with"; with people, with earth and water, with the prosaic and with the Erudite. This implies a huge challenge for both the academy and candidates wishing to be involved in this change. In this way, the PhD Program embraces the goals of sustainable development of the United Nations (ODS) to transform our world", says Cidália Silva, PhD Program Director and Assistant Professor at EAUM.
Students selected to attend this PhD course will also be part of the 'Landscape, Heritage and Territory Laboratory' (Lab2PT), a Research Unit rated Excellent in the latest I&D Unit evaluation process undertaken by FCT in 2019.
Lab2PT is an interdisciplinary Laboratory with researchers in the scientific fields of Archeology, Architecture and Urbanism, Design, Geography, Geology, History and Visual Arts. Brought together in three research groups, Landscapes and Societies (LandS), Design and Technology (DeTech) and Space and Representation (SpaceR), Lab2PT members promote broad interaction by generating an internal and international knowledge sharing network.

In order to meet its goals, the edition 2019/2020 is supported by renowned researchers from different disciplinary areas and coordinators of ongoing Research Projects at Lab2PT. By exploring this synergy, PhD students will have opportunities to integrate these and other projects, thus promoting research that is intended to be increasingly robust and collective.
