Who we are

The CiiEM (Centro de Investigação Interdisciplinar Egas Moniz) is the Research centre of Egas Moniz – Cooperativa de Ensino Superior CRL. The Centre represents a nucleus of innovation and knowledge creation. It fosters a paradigm of translational research and teaching in collaboration with other functional structures of Egas Moniz. It also focuses strongly on community interactions in different contexts, including health, health-related sciences and social services.


CiiEM provides an environment tailored to promoting the advance of knowledge in the scientific fields associated with health and health care, including sociology, psychology and forensic sciences, while implementing a demanding culture of quality. This environment is an essential part of the translational interface promoted by Egas Moniz, Cooperativa de Ensino Superior CRL, linking the needs of industry, clinics and society.
CiiEM seeks to impart an effective dynamic to specific actions that include research projects using collaborative activities where appropriate, services based on advanced research and training, dissemination actions and outreach activities, thus complementing the professional training and development of Egas Moniz students with relevant soft skills.

 Second CiiEM Congress

Translational Research and Innovation in Human and Health Sciences


As research evolves, new technologies and conceptual developments pose new challenges, and sometimes even change the way science is perceived and research is pursued. Surprising new concepts, sometimes even from outside our own area of expertise, may hit us unexpectedly, and new points of contact not hitherto anticipated may reshape our beliefs and expectations. In meetings, this broadening and refreshing our horizon of knowledge is combined with personal contacts that can translate into new cooperations. This is particularly effective when the participants are already connected by institutional or personal contacts that lower the barriers to getting new ideas to work.

To achieve such a goal, CiiEM is inviting our colleagues from Universities and research centres with which we already cooperate to participate in a joint meeting, that willstrengthen, extend and network the existing cooperation and to create the opportunity for developing new activities.

For young researchers, this CiiEM Congress is intended to be a semi-social friendly environment where burgeoning scientists can make their first public contributions and get feedback from an international panel of senior colleagues to develop their work. Senior scientists will be able to expand their connections and share their knowledge and expertise with colleagues from a broad research environment.

The abstracts of the Congress will be published in Open Access in the Annals of Medicine (IF 3.76).

We are very happy to extend the invitation to participate in this unique event to colleagues willing to interact with a wide range of researchers from the Human and Health Sciences area.
