Universidade de Évora

The University of Évora was the second university to be established in Portugal. After the founding of the University of Coimbra in 1537, the need for another university to serve the South of the country was felt.

The vision of the university of Évora favors the region background, the Alentejo, in which operates, choosing it as the preferred target of its effort to socialize knowledge; shares identical human, cultural and scientific values with the European Community; prioritize strategical alliances with the neighboring regions; seeks to expand its mission into the Portuguese-speaking countries, not forgetting, at the same time, the current challenges related to a global “world” for which the students must be well-prepared.
