Comentários do painel de avaliação
Sobre a unidade
The C-MADE unit at Covilhã consists of just one research group, specialising in materials and building technology. It is a new one, created only in July 2007. It has six members, which is not untypical for a research group but places it at the small end of the research unit size spectrum.
The group has produced a good number of publications in international journals.
They have produced three PhD students during the assessment period, which compares favourably with many units. Overall, they have done well for a newly formed group.
In terms of industrial contacts and contracts, there is evidence of some achievement and plans for further work of this type.
The group is working in a promising area of research and has a genuinely inter-disciplinary approach.
Their sense of strategic direction is relatively limited and would benefit from further development.
The output from the PhD programme is relatively limited.
