CDH Visiting Professor Program

=> Please note that the CDH Visiting Professor Program from CDH Direction has been discontinued.

CDH Professors can still invite professors and academic guests, following the directives established in the LEX 4.2.5.

Any invitation must be proposed by a CDH professor. We do not receive requests directly from candidates.

More information: Dr. Gabriela Tejada


Through the CDH Visiting Professor Program (VPP), the CDH promoted scientific relations with international scholars working in digital humanities research and education and other interdisciplinary domains linking engineering and social sciences, by enabling temporary stays of visiting professors and academic guests at CDH labs or institutes.

The VPP contributed to the expansion and reinforcement of the undertakings of the CDH, and facilitated new partnerships. The program complemented other hosting possibilities used by CDH faculty.
