CIAC researchers are part of an international project at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte
Following the protocols established between the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte and the PhD in Media-Digital Art, offered jointly by the Open University and the University of Algarve, the researchers and teachers of the DMAD, Bruno Silva and José Bidarra, are in Natal, Brazil, with the purpose of developing joint activities with that institution, involving actions of the Secretariat of Distance Education (Sedis) and the Laboratory of Technological Innovation in Health (LAIS) within the scope of the international and multidisciplinary project “Rapid Response to Syphilis in Networks of Attention “.
The contribution of the Portuguese team in the actions of the project goes through the definition of an innovative communication strategy for the project, using digital narratives and interactivity. The researchers had the opportunity to give two lectures in their areas of activity, digital narratives in the case of the researcher José Bidarra, and interactive cinema in the case of Bruno Silva, which allowed the start of the work sessions.
Also following this international cooperation, students of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte will attend, in this academic year, the Doctoral Degree in Media-Digital Art, through PhD scholarships financed by this multidisciplinary project that includes initiatives in differet areas such as health, technology and digital art.
