Cluny Research and Development Office


The Cluny Research and Development Office (GIDeC) was created by the S. José de Cluny School of Nursing on July 18, 2011, in order to constitute a structure that promotes research and development at ESESJC and its dissemination.

In order to reinforce the dynamism of research of great impact in the scientific community and society, the ESESJC has been improving its organization and respective processes. Thus, it has fostered conditions for the development of research and scientific production of excellence, valuing the potential of each agent involved, from students, teachers and other agents/entities with R&D activities.

Lines of Research

Contextualized by the institution's vision and the recommendations for the Quality of Higher Education in Portugal, as a starting point for the work to be developed, the following four lines of action structuring the Research axis were defined:

- Oriented research and high-level professional development;

- Mechanisms of articulation between teaching and research, namely with regard to students' contact with research and innovation activities from the early years and research carried out by teachers in the teaching areas;

- Mechanisms for transferring and valuing knowledge;

- Procedures for monitoring, evaluating and improving human and material resources allocated to research and development, scientific, technological and artistic production, the results of valuing knowledge and the articulation between teaching and research.
