In the 1910’s, with the establishment of a Republican Regime, were created two new schools of engineering: The Instituto Superior Técnico (Technical Institute) in Lisbon in 1911, and the Faculdade Técnica (Technical Faculty) in Porto, in 1915. In this paper we want to analyse the new pedagogical projects of Instituto Superior Técnico and Faculdade Técnica of University of Porto, and identify the academic and business networks linked to these schools. For this approach we will try to make a comparison between the creation and teaching of the two schools and the professors of each one.

Sobre o livro:
The International Multidisciplinary Congress – Web of Knowledge: A look into the Past, embracing the Future was held by IHC-CEHFCi, HERCULES Laboratory and CIDEHUS, University of Évora and took place in Évora, Portugal, from 17 to 19 May 2018.1 The Congress brought together researchers and scientists from different backgrounds intersecting the Exact Sciences with the Social Sciences revealing the visible and invisible networks. By fostering the exchange of knowledge and experiences in the study of the past, the Congress laid the framework for the present day science on which to map the future Web of Knowledge. A high-quality scientific programme was prepared, joining together experts from different fields covering a wide range of topics from Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities to Science and Technology. As a result of the quality of the panels and debates, the Organizing Committee decided to publish a digital and open access volume with blind peer-reviewed papers. This volume publishes a total of thirty-five contributions which reflect the innovative and multidisciplinary research occurring at the moment in different fields of knowledge, promoting visibility and networks of knowledge.
