Venue


The 1st Literacy Summit will be held at the Faculdade de Psicologia e Ciências da Educação da Universidade do Porto (FPCEUP).


FPCEUP is one of the 14 faculties of the University of Porto, which is currently the largest higher education and research institution in Portugal. The university is spread across 3 university campuses and is comprised of 15 schools, 69 research units, 1700 administrative, 2300 teachers and researchers, and close to 31 000 students (6 500 postgraduates).

Covering a large range of concentration areas in Psychology and Educational Sciences, FPCEUP is one the most sought after faculties in Portugal. Currently, more than 1 500 students attend its graduate and postgraduate programs, that are not only some of the most sought-after in the nation but are also attracting international students from all over the world.

The school provides continuous professional training to meet the wide-reaching needs of both internal and external audiences. Beyond higher education, FPCEUP carries out several research and development activities through high-quality research centers and laboratories, and through fruitful cooperation with national and international institutions. Notably, by means of its specialized psychological intervention services, FPCEUP was able to achieve a significant implementation in socially relevant areas, such as education, health, business, and justice.

Academic Accommodation (AACC-on)


As a way to minimize costs while participating in the 1st Literacy Summit (November 1-3, 2018) and to provide a way for participants to experience how it's like to study and live in Oporto, we created the Academic Accommodation Program (AAcc-on).

This program requires participants to sign up whether they need accommodation or if they are offering it. This program is based on the assumption that those who use the program are committed to also offer their homes if other participants request it.

The homes offered are not just confined to the center of the city, but also surrounding places that offer public transportation to the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto. Also, the program is not restricted to the departments involved in the organization of the Summit, allowing anyone at the University of Porto to participate.
