DOCTORAL P R O G R AMM E Sustainability Science REASOn | Resources, Food and Society

2 Welcome to ICS Marina Costa Lobo The Director The Instituto de Ciências Sociais is an Organic Unit of the Universidade de Lisboa, an R&D Unit of FCT and an Associated Laboratory evaluated as “Excellent” since obtaining status. Here, we carry out Innovative research on contemporary societies, addressing their legacies and facing their challenges. While we promote excellence in research, we also promote dialogue between science and society on topics related to Inclusion and Vulnerabilities, Citizenship, Sustainability, and Memories and Legacies, where our impact is tangible and lasting. We strongly invest in advanced scientific training, carrying out doctoral programmes and postgraduate specialisation and training courses. All teaching is closely linked to the theoretical and methodological approaches developed in ongoing research at ICS-ULisboa, as diverse as the societies we study. We are committed to creating a working and learning environment that is as inclusive as it is dynamic, where all voices are heard and valued. From cutting-edge research to advanced scientific training that shapes lifelong learning for young people and adults, we are committed to contributing positively to society. After all, knowledge only makes a difference when it is rigorous, shared, discussed, and applied. While we look back with pride and gratitude on ICSULisboa's 60-year history, we also have our eyes firmly set on the future. Join us on this exciting journey as we continue to shape the future of social sciences and contribute to a more informed, reflective, and connected society.

3 Objectives This PhD focuses on the dimension of food production and consumption as a central vector of the challenges facing sustainability, recognising that understanding food systems and acting on the global food system are fundamental instruments for sustainable development and require research on the interactions between ecology and socioeconomics. To be catalysts for change, 21st century professionals must be endowed with solid scientific knowledge and, above all, be able to incorporate it to understand the interactions between global, natural, social and human systems, and how these interactions affect sustainability challenges. The PhD was conceived within the scope of Colégio Food, Farming and Forestry (F3), mobilizing a faculty that includes 53 professors from 17 of the Faculties and Institutes of the University of Lisbon, which guarantees the necessary innovation and interdisciplinary approach.

4 Applications • Certificates of Qualifications • CV • Motivation Letter in English • Declaration of mastery of the English language • Declaration in which the candidate undertakes to comply with the code of conduct of Universidade de Lisboa Applications must be submitted to the ULisboa Rector's Office. This programme is lectured in English. Tuition Fees 1st year – 2750 € 2nd, 3rd and 4th years – 1750 € Grants Students may apply for scholarships offered by FCT, Instituto Camões or other national or foreign institutions. Classes Classes in the 1st year of the curriculum take place at Reitoria da Universidade de Lisboa. Target Audience Successful professionals and top-tier students who seek to turn knowledge into innovation and tangible results, with an academic background in any field of knowledge. This Study Cycle allows the development of a doctoral thesis in a university environment, in a business/industry environment or – in an innovative typology in relation to the traditional 3rd cycle offer – in a professional work context. The latter model offers the possibility of conducting a thesis on a scientific research question that is relevant to the exercise of the students' everyday professional activity.

7 “The Doctoral Programme in Sustainability Science, with its innovative and multidisciplinary methodology, manages to objectively and dynamically create bridges between different fields of knowledge and propose new paths and solutions to the challenges of sustainability.” Samuel Brito “Given the transdisciplinary aspect, this PhD allowed me to come into contact with new themes and work methodologies that proved to be very useful for the analysis and choice of the theme of the thesis."
