Comentários do painel de avaliação
Sobre a unidade
This research unit consists of 8 PhD researchers. Its scientific productivity is rather low, both in terms of its quality and relevance. A critical scale is dramatically lacking: few researchers with too few publications of a relatively low rank. This situation does not give hope for expecting a significant change in the future. On the contrary, while in the past a good researcher was present in the unit, he has now decided to move away, a fact that should enhance the weakness of the unit in the future. The leader of the unit is strongly willing to develop her field of research but, in spite of these excellent intentions and an unquestionable enthusiasm, one does not see how her objectives could be attained in a near future. This is all the more true that the present environment (material as well as academic) seems quite unfavourable to those objectives of development. We strongly suggest this unit, given its size and quality, to merge with another research unit in one of the universities in Lisboa.
