The integration of doctoral students in a territory-based multidisciplinary project, in the respective branch, corresponds to the face-to-face component of the program and aims to ensure full integration in research centers and teams, promoting a logic of team research work, which is essential to ensure among the various doctoral students.

The seminar has as main objectives:
1) to support the operationalisation of the concepts developed in the initial component of the doctoral programme, articulating them with the doctoral project in a context of territorial application. The term territorial is understood, in this context, as being a framework where research can be inserted and which implies interfaces with other communities, which may be extrinsic or not to academia, according to the nature of the doctoral project.
2) to prepare the articulation of the PhD students' projects with the field of landscape archaeology in a multidisciplinary perspective, from the experience of participating in a concrete project, within the CGEO research lines (UID00073/FCT).
All lecturers coordinate territory-based projects.

The objective 1) finds correspondence in the programmatic contents a), b) and c). The contact sessions will systematize the principles of operationalization of the three identified contents.
The objective 2) corresponds to the programmatic content d). The contact sessions allow a full integration in a project team, with definition of sectorial responsibilities within a multidisciplinary research team.

Sessions will involve asynchronous exposition of theoretical content and its application, synchronous group discussions on the appropriateness of methodologies to unforeseen occurrences during the research process, as well as team-work in a research centre, in a face-to-face context. A support guide will be provided by the teacher.

The assessment includes the delivery and preparation of a report of the work applied in a territorial context (50%) and its presentation, discussion and oral defence (50%).
