Centre for Research in Anthropology (CRIA)
The Centre for Research in Anthropology (CRIA) is an interuniversity R&D unit founded in 2007 and qualified as Very Good in the R&D units’ international evaluations promoted by FCT Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia) in 2007 and 2013. CRIA is a dynamic network based on four universities (NOVA FCSH, ISCTE-IUL, U. Coimbra and UMinho). This network’s functioning enables each institutional division to autonomously develop its own activities while they all share the fundamental resources necessary to the management, fundraising, research dissemination, teaching and knowledge transfer. It furthermore encourages the mobility of CRIA’s researchers between the centre’s different institutional grounds.
