The Doctoral Programme in Eco Construction and Rehabilitation involves a partnership between five universities (University of Lisbon, University of Minho, University NOVA of Lisbon, University of Coimbra and University of Porto) and the National Laboratory of Civil Engineering. The programme is focused on the following main research domains within civil engineering:
- (i) life-cycle analysis;
- (ii) strategies for deconstruction, reuse and recycling;
- (iii) sustainable and durable materials/products;
- (iv) durability for sustainability;
- (v) rehabilitation for safety, comfort and energy efficiency.
The Doctoral Programme (DP) on Eco-Construction and Rehabilitation aims at funding a significant part of the students selected for the programme. Namely, there are nine scholarships available for the first edition of the programme, starting in 2014, but students funded from other sources can also apply.
