The importance of social responsibility has made Egas Moniz adopt it as one of its values and state in its ‘Vision’ that it is an institution, which not only ensures the purpose of education and research but also establishes itself as a social responsibility centre that is highly integrated in the local community and provides healthcare and other care to the community, particularly to those that need it the most.

Thus, social responsibility is one of the fields of action at Egas Moniz not only through the activities provided by its Dentistry and University Practices but also the academic community by carrying out projects with the local community (within the curriculum of each degree as well as extracurricular activities).

In this section of the website you will obtain information on social responsibility as a strategic pillar for Egas Moniz, examples of initiatives that were promoted by our academic community, and other general ones where Egas Moniz takes part.
