The social development of human values in childhood and early adolescence_CLAVE
Funded by FCT
PTDC/SOC-SOC/30635/2017; 01/01/2018 to 31/12/2020
The CLAVE project aims to analyze the role of values in the formation of representations of justice and attitudes towards different social groups (age, gender, nationality, etc.) as well as in terms of personal growth and well-being. It proposes to map the basic human values of children and young adolescents (6-14 years), and their association with other central factors to better understand the current and future dynamics of inclusion and exclusion in the European area. The CLAVE project is expected to contribute in advancing the formation and development of human values in children and young people as well as the role of culture in this process from an international and interdisciplinary comparative perspective.

Social Images, organizational climate and quality of relationships in Residential Care_CIRC: The design, implementation and evaluation of an intervention program.
Funded by FCT
01/12/2017 to 31/10/2020
The Residential Care (RC) system is under pressure to address increasingly demanding needs of youths in care. The CIRC project aims to investigate the association between system-level variables (such as organizational climate, the social images held by the staff and the relationships between educators and youths) and youth outcomes (such as self-representations, behavior, and academic achievement) through a correlational study. The project helps understanding the processes underlying the construction of self-representations, behavior, and academic achievement of youth in RC. This also offers significant implications for practice since it allows for empirically testing process models that provide inputs for designing a needs-led and theory-based program.
Awareness While Experiencing and Surfing On Movies through Emotions_AWESOME
Funded by FCT
01/10/2017 to 30/09/2020
The objective of AWESOME project is to investigate the emotional dimension of movie and provide support for the classification, access, navigation and visualization of movies based on the emotions expressed in the content of the movies as well as the emotions felt by the viewers during and after watching movies. This will help users to gain more awareness on the emotional impact of watching movies and empower them in regulating emotions when accessing and watching movies and videos.

Reducing sugar intake: Individual and contextual determinants of sugar perception and consumption_SUGAR
Funded by FCT
LX-01-0145-FEDER-028008; 01/10/2017 to 30/09/2020
The SUGAR project examines the eating habits and the sugar content of processed food, and how such information is acquired and processed. It also experimentally examines contextual (e.g., sugar content labeling) and individual (e.g., attitudes, regulatory focus) factors underlying the perception and consumption of different types of high-sugar processed foods. The findings will be highly informative to understand the current problem of excessive free-sugar intake and to design future evidence-based interventions to address it. Although this project focuses on free sugars, its rationale and methodologies may be applied to other nutrients that have been shown to contribute to malnutrition (e.g. fat and sodium content) as well as to other population (e.g., children).
Sustainable School Meals_SUSTAINMEALS: Unlocking the potential of the public plate towards a large-scale transition to plant-based meals in schools
Funded by FCT
01/10/2017 to 30/09/2020
The project SUSTAINMEALS adopts an integrated approach to promote a large-scale, nationwide shift towards healthier and more sustainable plant-based meals, focusing both on individual consumer-level variables and shared context-based variables. It builds on the disciplinary backgrounds and previous findings of the research team that has been working on complementary approaches to the study of meat consumption/substitution and plant-based diets, behavioral change interventions in health-related topics and eating habits, and research on food policy and consumption practices with a focus on sustainability and dietary shifts.

Compartilhar Riquezas_Sharing wealth and decisions in the EU: identity and legitimacy_EURO-IDENT
Funded by FCT
PTDC/MHC-PSO/1094/2014; 01/07/2016 to 30/06/2019
The project focuses on the economic and political implication of identity processes by bringing the latest resources of social psychological research on identity and the highly topical issues explored by political science. It includes a program of experimental studies designed to pinpoint the causal mechanisms involved at the social psychological level, as well as an extensive longitudinal study to look at the development of European identity in the current economic context. obtrusive
Representações Partilhadas_Shared Representations: A peek into the collaborative memory toolbox_SHARE
Funded by FCT
PTDC/MHC-PCN/5217/2014; 01/07/2016 to 30/06/2019
The research project investigates the social nature of memory and the distinctive mechanisms underlying collaborative memory process. It focuses on two forms of social memory phenomena that have been robustly demonstrated: (a) effects of socially shared encoding on individual memory, and (b) effects of group collaboration in memory tasks.
Sobre as dores_On the pains of social standing: understanding the role of patient social status on pain assessment and management practices_SoS_PAIN
Funded by FCT
PTDC/MHC-PSC/2041/2014; 01/07/2016 to 30/06/2019
This project investigates the influence of patient social status on pain assessment/management practices (PAMP) which rests on the ability of health-care practitioners to empathize with the experience of the pain patient. Two theoretical models are proposed and tested: social status effect and its psychosocial accounts (Model 1), and social status buffer effect models (Model 2).
