About us

Integrating the network of research centres belonging to FCT (Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia), the Centre is now twice rated as Excellent by FCT's evaluation process and is the only Portuguese centre dedicated specifically to gender studies.

CIEG counts with the collaboration of researchers from several national and international universities, who work gender issues from different perspectives and disciplines.


CIEG aims to contribute to the consolidation and internationalization of gender studies in Portugal, while being a dynamic space where researchers can come together, promoting the exchange of ideas and fighting their dispersion.
