Research Unit Description

The CMADE is a research unit formed by two Portuguese universities with a well-known reputation for its welcoming environment that promotes learning-research: The University of Beira Interior (UBI) and the University of Trás- os-Montes e Alto Douro (UTAD).

The research unit carries out scientific and technological activities and dissemination actions, with the involvement of national and foreign researchers, fostering collaborative innovation and knowledge transfer, particularly with industry.

C-MADE’s mission is to promote excellence in science and contribute to new developments in civil engineering and related areas, including sustainable materials and binders, mechanical behaviour and durability, energy efficiency and environment, resource efficiency and raw materials.


Strategic aims

  • Develop a research and innovation agenda focused on sustainable construction, climate change mitigation and development of eco-materials.
  • To attract young researchers, empowering the Portuguese Interior for its science-based development and contributing to creating highly qualified scientific jobs;
  • Consolidate a cluster of knowledge of excellence of the research and innovation agenda developed at C-MADE.


Highlights of achievements

  • Environmentally sustainable technologies for mining and industrial waste up-cycling;
  • Technologies for eco-materials production with co-utilisation of waste and carbon dioxide;
  • Patents (e.g. ECO2BLOCKS/GEOGREEN) for sustainable and energy-efficient construction;
  • Hydrodynamic models of transport processes in watercourses (e.g. ash from forest fires);
  • Numerical optimisation of models for the design of structural members and components.
