A new researcher has recently arrived in UMinho who will be part of the team for the next two months as a visiting member for the Stand4Heritage project. His name is Mislav Stepinac and he is an assistant professor from the University of Zagreb. He applied for a Visiting Research Fellowship for ERC granted project with the Croatian Science Foundation (HRZZ).
After a long trip by car, he arrived in Guimarães to start a collaboration with Professor Paulo Lourenço within S4H. This experience will contribute to the growth of his proposal for the ERC grant for the year 2021-2022.
