FEUP’s educational model is designed to prepare students for successful careers in engineering and beyond. Their PhD programs, candidates and researchers are supported by doctoral education initiatives such as: soft landing & onboarding; 11 transferable skills courses (research, soft and entrepreneurship skills); the Doctoral Congress in Engineering ; career counseling; mental health & wellbeing services and; the Innovation and technology transfer services.

With 249 labs, 25 I&D Units and 25 spin-off companies, FEUP is at the heart of Porto Innovation District and is the engine behind the success of the Science and Technology Park of the University of Porto, UPTEC. FEUP is also helping to turn the northern region of Portugal into a centre for innovation, demonstrating how active universities can lead the move to smart growth.

FEUP is our host for the fifth Annual PRIDE Conference in Porto, Portugal this May. In this Episode we talk about the conference topic, research integrity and what to expect of the conference overall.
