This is who we are

Science Retreats was created with the overarching aim of promoting innovation
in the realms of arts, sciences and humanities.

We are located at the heart of historical Évora - UNESCO World Heritage Site. Given its small size, privileged location, unique quality of life, historical glamour, and vibrant academic and economic environment, it is one of the Portuguese towns with the greatest potential for growth in the artistic, scientific, and cultural domains. 


We are guided by the following values:​

  • Excellence in management and services provided to our customers;

  • Praise for the historical, artistic and cultural heritage of Évora and the Alentejo region; 

  • Focus on intellectual dimensions of life, while keeping an open mind regarding interdisciplinary links between fields;

  • Promotion of ecology and environmental sustainability: 

  • Uncompromised support for freedom of thought, respect for individual differences, and democratic values. 

This what we do

Consulting for a better World

We are interested in the creation and promotion of new markets with positive consequences for social cohesion and environmental sustainability.
