The University of Évora (UÉvora) is organized in 4 Schools: Arts, Sciences and Technology, Social Sciences and Nursing and offers 33 undergraduate and 41 postgraduate degrees. Research and Development (R&D) covers several scientific areas through a network of 14 Research Units, all of them submitted to international evaluation, under the coordination of the Institute for Research and Advanced Studies. R&D aims at enhancing knowledge transfer to society at large, thus contributing to its development and sustainability. To meet this end, research activities are grounded on both a multi-disciplinary and inter-departmental basis and on specific programmes and projects, taking advantage of the synergies generated by the interaction among different areas. The main R&D areas are: Agronomy and Biodiversity; Geophysics, Environment and Landscaping; Materials and Surface Science; Economics and Business Studies; Computer Sciences and Software Interoperability; Social and Political Sciences, History, History of Art, Science and Cultures; Applied Mathematics; Education; Linguistics and Literature; Elderly Healthcare. Most of the 150 running R&D projects are developed through national and international partnerships, and are funded by the Seventh Framework Program, the European Social Fund, the National Science Foundation as well as by private sponsorship. UÉvora established 2 Chairs in areas of excellence: Biodiversity and Renewable Energies, which are sponsored by private capital holders.
