Sustainable Tourism and Territories is one of the research areas of The Research Centre for Tourism, Sustainability and Well-being (CinTurs) (https://www.cinturs.pt/site/)
Economic statisticians employ specialised methodologies to delve into a variety of themes. The research activities of our statisticians group are primarily centred around three key areas: 1) statistical analysis of sustainability across its multifaceted aspects, including economic, social, environmental, and energy sustainability; 2) statistical models to examine corporate innovation and its impact on the labour market and human capital; 3) statistical models for finance, including the analysis of extreme values and forecasting, enhanced by sentiment analysis techniques.
The group's research profile covers a wide range of topics in the fields of Economics and Finance, with particular emphasis on Financial Economics, Economic Integration, Business Cycles, Monetary Economics, Regional Economics, Economics of Innovation, Economic Policy, Labor Market, Income Inequality, Economic Growth and Development and Tourism Economic Impacts.
The group's research covers a wide range of topics, with particular emphasis on financial economics, money and banking, econophysics, the application of agent-based models, networks, and multifractal models in the fields of economics and finance.
The Center for Advanced Studies in Management and Economics (CEFAGE) was created in 2006, with the aim of promoting high quality research in the areas of Management and Economics. Since 2009 CEFAGE is funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) (previous project reference: UID/ECO/04007/2013; current project reference UIDB/04007/2020).

The scientific production is derived from the following 3 lines of research: Knowledge Management and Innovation; Top Management Teams; and Entrepreneurship. The most recent line focuses on the study of academic spin-offs, and emerged from a research project of R&D National Plan, beginning with a research stay (2011-2012) at the Institute of Innovation Research of the University of Manchester. This line has been developed through three competitive projects in which I have been the main researcher.
