Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias (Lusophone University of Humanities and Technologies) is the largest Portuguese private university, and the main institution of Grupo Lusófona, which administers other universities and colleges in Portugal, Brazil, Cape Verde, Angola, Guinea-Bissau and Mozambique. Indeed, promotion of Lusophony (the speaking of Portuguese) is seen as a major objective of the institution; students from former Portuguese African colonies pay substantially reduced fees.

History[edit]

The Universidade Lusofona started in 1987 in Lisbon and is the property of Grupo Lusófona a Portuguese private investor group geared at developing higher education institutions in Lusophone countries. Since then Universidade Lusófona has opened semi-autonomous offshoots in Porto, Luanda, Mindelo (2007). The Instituto Superior Manuel Teixeira Gomes (ISMAT), is a private higher education establishment that belongs to the Lusófona Group, located in Portimão, Portugal, and founded as such in 2004 from older private higher education institutions previously operating in the city.[1]

Instituto Superior Manuel Teixeira Gomes[edit]

The Instituto Superior Manuel Teixeira Gomes (ISMAT), is a private higher education establishment that belongs to the Lusófona Group, located in Portimão, Algarve region, Portugal, resulting from the merger between ISMAG and ISHT of Portimão in 2004. The main mission of the institute is to widen the offer of higher education in the western Algarve region. ISMAT's strategic objectives are to provide university courses and to develop research in the most different areas of specialization, with particular emphasis on scientific and technical fields that can contribute to the development of the Algarve region, that can respond to regional needs in terms of human resources training, and that can meet the most pressing regional development needs. The teaching institution was established in 2004 and is named after Manuel Teixeira Gomes, a Portuguese politician, diplomat and writer from Portimão who served as President of Portugal between 1923 and 1925. As of 2021, ISMAT awards degrees in fields such as architecture,[3] data science,[4] computer engineering,[5] law,[6] psychology[7] and sports science.[8] Besides research and teaching endeavors, the institution dynamizes the city's society through workshops and expositions it organizes.[9] Among its teaching staff, ISMAT has counted with some notable individualities of the Algarve such as Cândida Ventura and Carlos Lopez Cano Vieira.[10]
