Our strategic priority is always to attract the best talent to Madeira, from students to junior and senior faculty, that can help make M-ITI an excellence centre in HCI research and design-driven innovation. M-ITI's research team is currently around 50 people (including faculty and PhD students) and a cohort of more than 400 current and former postgraduate students, supported by a dedicated group of staff. This vibrant and enthusiastic community represents more than 40 different nationalities from four continents.
We believe that excellence, in particular in one of the most remote regions of Europe, can only be achieved by attracting and retaining the best people from around the world.
