Research Opportunities

CMA has a regular programme for "Visiting Researchers". During the year, each research group of CMA is invited to propose a visit of a distinguished researcher that will present a course at CMA.

The CMA intends to take advantage of the Visiting Researcher Programme to:
- promote research with high-level international researchers;
- recover researchers with lower productivity;
- improve the quality of Ph.D. programmes.

There are other international exchange programmes and mobility activities for students, professors and researchers, aiming to improve education level, the quality of research and teaching activities:
