About us

The PhD student’s council, CAD (from Portuguese “Conselho de Alunos de Doutoramento”) of CICECO was founded in 2019, at the University of Aveiro. CAD aims at representing all CICECO’s PhD students inside the research unit in which they are developing their work and promote closer proximity between CICECO's PhD students. This council also facilitates the communication between the students and director board of CICECO, enabling the rapid resolution of problems within the institute. Furthermore, CAD is responsible for promoting and creating events in line with the students’ interests, focusing mostly on the development of transversal skills complementary to their research.
