OUR MOTTO

“Aut viam inveniam aut faciam”

We reconnect academia with the society. GIRES, is the acronym inspired by gyres, the large systems of rotating ocean currents that shape our habitat and affect our lives. We, in GIRES, may ``find a path`` but we will definitely ``create one”. We support the advancement of knowledge and education and create new, pioneering paths for academics, scholars and artists.

VALUES

Freedom, Integrity, Transparency, Interdisciplinarity, Collaboration, Independence, Diversity, Cognition, Creativity, Equality
