Lamego’s Higher School of Technology and Management (Portugal) started its activity in the academic year 2000/2001, with the BA courses of Management and Computer Science and Tourism, Cultural and Heritage Management. Later it widened its offer with the courses of Computer Engineering and Telecommunications, Accounting and Auditing and Social Work, Tourism Information and Secretarial Administration.

The School is an organic unit of the Polytechnic Institute of Viseu with Administrative, Scientific and Pedagogical autonomy. Focused on initial training, in scientific fields that can more directly intervene in the activity of economic and productive sectors of its area of coverage, the training offers in the areas of Tourism, Management, Accounting, Administration, Information Technology, Telecommunications and Social Work, have proved to be interesting bets.

Also in this area, post-graduate courses have been another area of training with growing demand, especially for those who want to improve their qualifications to meet the increasing demands of the labor market. The school has gradually become a focal point in the socio-economic development of the Douro region, particularly in the enhancement of its heritage resources through tourism.

DINÂMIA’CET-Iscte, Centre for Socioeconomic and Territorial Studies (Lisbon, Portugal) is an Iscte Research Unit, evaluated with Very Good by FCT - the Portuguese national funding agency for science, research and technology.

The Centre combines fundamental and applied research on economic, social and cultural topics. It carries out advanced international research systematically grounded on interdisciplinarity.

With the aim of framing a new approach to sustainable development, our research seeks to contribute to the understanding of the contemporary world through the analysis of the contexts, the actors and the consequences of change, with a focus on institutional frameworks, and through extensive recourse to comparative approaches.

Devoting special attention to the dynamics and changes of the Portuguese society, the researchers of DINÂMIA’CET-Iscte are engaged in contributing to the design of the future, and, when considered appropriate (e.g. to promote environmental sustainability, social cohesion and democracy), do not hesitate to expressly endorse a normative approach.
