CEOS.PP, founded in March 2017, resulted from the integration of three former Research Centres of Porto Accounting and Business School (ISCAP). The merging of these into a bigger and interdisciplinary R&D Unit in the field of Social and Organizational Studies was a strategic option of Porto Polytechnic and ISCAP, oriented towards the repositioning and reinforcing of the scientific structures of IPP in national and international research networks.
The three former R&D units brought together a competitive and interdisciplinarity team of more than 100 Researchers, aggregated in three research Units:
- Research Unit on Law and Business Studies (UECEJ);
- Research Unit on Information Systems (UESI);
- Research Unit on Languages, Communication and Education (UELCE).
The cross-domain research developed by these units comes to existence in the development of applied research projects and the promotion of interdisciplinarity, thus contributing to the broadening of the activities to new knowledge and professional practices, the quality and the impact of the scientific activity and to strengthen the collaboration with other areas of society and business initiatives.
