The University of the Algarve (UAlg) has over twenty R&D units, supported by about 600 faculty and external members, many of them active in other national and international research units cutting across the computational science domain.
The Penha Campus at University of Algarve is a modern campus with state-of-the-art facilities.
Faro is the capital of Algarve and, as such, very easily reachable. Faro’s International Airport is located 5 km from the city center, just a short taxi/bus ride away. The airport is served by several major airlines and many low-cost companies.
Once in Faro, the bus and railway stations are just a 5-minute walk from the city center. Lisbon, the country’s main hub and city, is only about a 3-hour train trip from Faro, with tickets selling for under 25€.
