Wrap up by Prof. Nichola Rumsey




The COST meeting will take place at the Faculty of Psychology and Education of the University of Porto (in Portuguese: Faculdade de Psicologia e de Ciências da Educação da Universidade do Porto – FPCEUP).

The faculty is located on Rua Alfredo Allen; a very short walk from 'Pólo Universitário' metro station.




Google Maps:



The surface subway (Metro) line is a quick connection between the airport, the city centre and the main hotels in Porto, with services every 20 minutes. Line E (Violet) connects the airport to ‘Estádio do Dragão’ Station, and to the rest of the metro’s network. The journey from the airport to the city centre (‘Trindade’ station) takes approximately 25 minutes.


You will need to buy an ANDANTE card (0.50€). The ANDANTE (see image bellow) is a card that can be (re)charged with travel titles.



You can buy or charge the ANDANTE in automatic machines (available in all the stations). It is reusable.

A Zone 4 (Z4) ticket is required from the airport to the city centre and costs 1.85 € one way.

Transport from Downtown to the Faculty of Psychology and Education of the University of Porto


To go the Faculty you should exit at ‘Polo Universitário’ station, Line D (yellow), direction 'Hospital de São João’. From ‘Trindade’ station (downtown) the journey to the Faculty will take about 13 minutes (Trip Time 7' + Waiting Time 6’).

Leaving the ‘Polo Universitário’ station, using the lifts and stairs, just turn left and you will find FPCEUP. If you leave the station using the escalator then turn right on exiting the station (as this exit is on the opposite side).

A single travel ticket (Zone 2 - Z2) will cost 1.20€.



There are only a couple of hotels near to the University Campus. Although the meeting venue will take place in University Campus, the accommodation in downtown is also a good option as it is very easy to get there by metro. Important - For this meeting COST reimburse only €80 per night!
