CeFEMA members are strongly involved in a number of Master Degrees and PhD Programs in which Instituto Superior Tecnico and the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon, participate at institutional, national and international levels.
CeFEMA provides the scientific support to the various advanced training programs in which its members are involved in, both as teachers of specific courses and as supervisors for a large number of students. CEFEMA offers opportunities for advanced training, either through specific cooperative programs or in the framework of bilateral collaborations. The competence and expertise of the researchers in the Center, the variety of experimental techniques available, and the access to national and international collaborations are important resources for the students training process.
CeFEMA is also strongly enrolled in educational Outreach Activities that are carried out in a number of diversified regular activities.
