About us

The Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Research (CIIAS) is an R&D center that promotes and participates in scientific research activities in the health field.

It was created in 2016 within the framework of the IPS R&D policy, based on the Order of the President of IPS nº 112/2013, and is headquartered at the Higher School of Health of the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal (ESS/ IPS).

With an interdisciplinary and multiprofessional approach, CIIAS aims to contribute to societal development, either by transferring knowledge to different contexts and populations, or by providing specialized services to the regional and national community.
