The Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (NOVA) is identified as a university institution with internationally recognised research and quality teaching, progressively oriented towards second and third cycle education, capable of providing high levels of professional success to its students and providing relevant services to the community, national and international; a university with distinct elements at national level, both in training programmes and in pure and applied research, and with strategic partnerships of excellence. The mission of NOVA, as a university institution that wishes to be a reference, is broken down as follows: • Competitive research at international level, specialising in interdisciplinary areas, including research aimed at resolution of the problems that affect society • Teaching of excellence, with a growing emphasis in the second and third cycles, but based on solid primary cycle levels, through competitive academic programmes at national and international level, praising merit as the essential measure of assessment • A broader base of interinstitutional participation, geared towards integration of the various scientific cultures, with a view to creating innovative synergies for teaching and for research • The provision of quality services, both nationally and internationally, capable of making a relevant contribution to social development and to qualification of human resources, giving particular attention to the countries where Portuguese is spoken.
