Core Team

    Actually, CEDRU is the team and this one develops itself from the company's culture.

    Thus, from our relationship, we generate energies that move us beyond routine in the enhancement of multiple dimensions of the human being and in discovering and practising the old maxim – mens sana in corpore sano, through which we get to work, to friendship relations, and to daily recreational enrichment.

    That is also why our team becomes multiple teams, with various vocations and different purposes.

    Permanent Scientific and Technical Consultancy

    We have a wide and diversified range of consultants who, with their trainings and experiences, have contributed significantly for the success of the works undertaken by CEDRU.

    Our consultants also work as hubs of expertise and knowledge, functional and regional, which safely allow us to go in for areas and contexts that might have less centrality in our experiences.

    After 25 years of working with interdisciplinary teams, comprising elements from different regions of the country and a large number of European countries, CEDRU is, first of all, thankful to their external consultants not only for their specific contribution but also for the enrichment that the joint work has brought to the members of our team.

    International Advisory Board

    CEDRU was created by the time Portugal joined the European Community and, therefore, within a framework of enlargement of the internationalization of the country. Thus, we called in immediately for the first studies the collaboration of experts from other countries and experts linked to research university institutions.

    We are now acquainted with experts from different areas and countries, who we believed should be formally integrated into the team. It was when the ICC – the International Advisory Board was created and to which we often appeal to, whether for guidance, monitoring and evaluation of our strategies and proposals, or to support the search for consultants in specific areas.
