University of Evora

The University of Evora is simultaneously an old and a new university. It was founded in 1559 by Cardinal D. Henrique, who handed over to the Company of Jesus. In 1759 - two hundred years after its foundation - the University was closed as a consequence of a royal decree that banished the Jesuits from Portugal. Only in 1973, more than two centuries later, was the University of Evora reconstituted as a public university. It was installed in its original building, the Colegio do Espirito Santo (College of the Holy Spirit), a building that is classified as a World Heritage Monument. This is the building where the 40th EARIE Annual Conference will take place.

Currently, the University of Evora offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degrees in most scientific areas, with highly qualified teachers and researchers and several Research Centres regularly evaluated by international panels, associated with perennial values such as mutual respect, desire for knowledge, intellectual honesty and freedom of thought. Its campus is now blended in with the city, and is comprised of buildings with a high patrimonial value from different historical periods.
