Filipa Ferro

Collaborator Researcher


In 2013, I completed the Integrated Master in Environmental Engineering, Management Profile and Environmental Systems at FCT-UNL. In my master’s thesis I analyzed the influence that territorial structure and mobility options have on the energy performance of municipalities.

That same year, I started working in the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering of FCT-UNL in processes of construction of collective knowledge, participatory methodologies and environmental awareness and education, integrating teams of national and international projects.

With this experience I have acquired skills in organizing and facilitating events (exhibitions, seminars, conferences, participatory workshops), design of educational activities, awareness campaigns and dissemination and communication materials, preparation of technical reports, preparation of applications for national and European funding. and project management.

Most recently I worked at Mediatedomain, Lda., An SME that specializes in environmental mediation and conflict management, consensus building and collaborative solutions, and the design and facilitation of interactive participation and strategic planning processes, where my main role was managing a European project aimed at involving citizens and various other European actors in redefining the European Research and Innovation agenda.

With my work I want to contribute to building a sustainable and inclusive present and future, and I believe that the integration of knowledge and the design and professional conduct of participation processes are essential for sustaining better decisions.
