The Center for Applied Research and Consulting (CEA) is the consulting unit of CATÓLICA-LISBON. Its mission is to provide a continuous bridge between the academic world and Portuguese companies, offering consulting services in the areas of economics and management to private, public and social institutions.

These services are mainly driven by the application, to real world situations, of several research topics investigated by CATÓLICA-LISBON faculty, in their expertise areas.

CATÓLICA-LISBON is recognized as a leading Management and Economics school, both in terms of research and teaching, and some of our teachers are recognized by their relevant professional experience.

The CEA has undertaken studies and consulting for private, public and social institutions in several fields such as Public-Private Partnerships, Financial Economics, Regulatory Economics, Health Economics, Financial Management, Marketing Management, Specific industries research.

A specific consulting team is set up for each project, in line with the respective requirements. The consulting teams are composed of faculty members as well as other experts who are well reputed practitioners.  Teaching assistants and students are also part of our teams.

CEA also benefits from the body of expertise inside Portuguese Catholic University, especially from our Law faculty when there is such need, and also from other University centers such as CESOP (center for studies and opinion surveys).
