12. Evaluation and selection criteria and procedures:

The evaluation of the applications will focus on the candidate's Merit, being applied the following evaluation criteria, valued on a scale of 1 to 20 points:

 

Merit of the candidate - MC (100%):

 

A.1: Academic path (which reflects the classifications of the academic degrees in the scientific areas of the fellowship, according to the reference table), with a weighting of 30%;

A.2: Academic research and professional experience in architectural projects relating to typology and modern and/or contemporary construction, with a weighting of 40%;

A.3: Professional experience with the aforementioned digital programs, with a weighting of 15%.

A.4: Motivation letter, with a weighting of 15%.

 

The classification for the Merit of the candidate (MC) will be obtained by applying the following formula:

 

MC=(A1*0,3)+(A2*0,4)+(A3*0,15)+(A4*0,15)

 

The jury reserves itself the right not to grant the fellowship if there are no candidates with the appropriate profile for the tender.

 

The documents proving the ownership of academic degrees and diplomas, or the respective recognition when they have been awarded by foreign institutions of higher education, can be dismissed in the application phase, being replaced by a declaration of honour of the applicant, occurring the verification of this condition only during the contracting phase of the fellowship. This declaration of honour must address facts that occurred on a date prior to the application. In situations of divergence between the information contained in the declaration of honour and the documentation delivered for the purpose of the contract for the fellowship, only the information contained in the latter will be considered. If it occurs that the documents proving ownership of the academic degree and diploma, or the respective recognition under the terms of Decree-Law no. 66/2018, of 16 August, do not correspond to the classifications attributed in the evaluation of the academic path and may consequently change the candidate's ranking, the fellowship contracting will not be made effective.

 

Note: Candidates with degrees obtained abroad must present a proof of recognition of those qualifications in Portugal and a conversion of the final classification obtained in the degree to the Portuguese classification scale or a declaration in the terms indicated in the previous point.
