Cooperativa de Formação e Animação Cultural (COFAC) is the organisation legally responsible for the maintenance of Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias (ULHT) and CICANT. An important aspect of its mission is to promote the affirmation of “Lusofonia” at all levels, including its integration with other geographical and cultural areas within and outside Europe. To this end, Lusofona has served as the core of the national and international network of educational, research and cultural institutions developed and run by Lusofona University. Today, this network integrates twelve other higher education institutions, in Brasil, Moçambique, Angola and Cabo Verde. With over 10,000 students, including those on international exchange programmes, and a teaching and research staff of more than 1,000. The University offers over sixty degree courses in several scientific area, from the Natural Sciences and Engineering, to the Humanities and Fine Arts, as well as numerous opportunities for social, scientific, cultural and sports activities, at its main campus located in Lisbon. CICANT (from COFAC) is one of four poles from CIC.Digital and results from the combined efforts of all teachers in the School of Communication, Arts and Information Technologies towards the goal of creating an autonomous research unit which will allow for the integration and harnessing of all the research activities conducted within the school. This unit promotes theoretical and applied research on all its subject areas, particularly focusing on knowledge transfer and exchange with industry and similar centres in Portugal and in Europe. The CICANT research center, gathering students and faculty from Communication and Film and Media Arts Departments promotes theoretical and applied research, particularly focusing on knowledge transfer and exchange with industry and similar centers in Portugal and in Europe at the cross of media, arts, culture and technologies. CICANT distinguishes itself via its state of the art technical facilities and the highly applied nature of its research and knowledge transfer oriented teaching and learning activities. Since 2004, CICANT has been the leader of over 13 international projects supported by the Media and Erasmus Programmes of the EU, including projects focused on innovation in the engagement of young people in learning and entrepreneurship, such as Gamilearning and Cinema and Industry Alliance for Knowledge and Learning I and II – a Knowledge Alliance consortium promoting entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial mindset among film and creative media students. In the field of Media Literacy, CICANT has closed two projects in which was the leader, one funding by the National Scientific Foundation (FCT) and another by the EU under the ERASMUS+ programme (GAMILearnig and ECFOLI), and one as partner under Media Literacy For All programm (MIA).
