CICS.NOVA is a research unit (RU) created in 2015, as the result of a synergetic merge of: CESNOVA Research Centre for Sociological Studies and e-GEO Research Centre for Geography and Regional Planning, both hosted by NOVA FCSH, and CICS Research Centre for Social Sciences hosted by Minho University. These three research units had already a broad scientific activity. It is important not to neglect that work, so the websites of those former research units will remain available below. There one can find all the research developed by our researchers before they joined CICS.NOVA.
