This research group is based on the close articulation between economic issues and the analysis of international realities.
Seeking to deepen interdisciplinary knowledge, its main objectives are the study of the process of internationalisation of economies, their interdependence and their various impacts and challenges, with emphasis, naturally, on those dimensions of the Portuguese and European economies; as well as the study of the political and economic importance of some strategic resources on the international scene.
We intend to produce and share innovative and relevant scientific research, in the areas of Geoeconomics and Resources, within the scope of the different economic, social and environmental challenges.
The vast majority of projects and activities are developed with partner institutions, both Portuguese and foreign.
