The IPCDHSUC managed to achieve during this period a high level of international visibility, reflecting both an important qualitative rise up in the publications profile, and an increased recognition accorded by international peer networks and organizations. Concerning the publication profile, it now spans a broad spectrum of reference and highly reputed journals, such as, among others: Journal of Career Assessment; Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics; Experimental Brain Research; Frontiers in Psychology: Cognition; Journal of Business Research; Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition; Musicae Scientiae; PLoS ONE; Vision Research; Children and Youth Services Review; Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Journal of Vocational Behavior, Journal of Counseling Psychology. Concerning international recognition by peers, it can be attested by the assignment to the IPCDHS of responsibilities in the organization of international events corresponding to scheduled (regular) meetings of International Societies/Associations in the field of Psychology (e.g., the 11th Biennial Conference of the Society For Vocational Psychology: Career Counseling and Development: Rebuilding Hope through School, Work, and Relationships, July 14-16, 2014, University of Coimbra, co-organized by a section of the Counseling Psychology Division of the APA and the IPCDHS, or the Fourth International Conference on Information Integration Theory and Functional Measurement, 13-14 June, 2013. Coimbra, Portugal. Of note is that the former conference, which has now in preparation its 3rd edition, only took place three times outside the United States, one of them in Canada, and the others at the University of Coimbra, Portugal), and by the partaking of members of the IPCDHS in wide-encompassing international projects in relevant areas for the IPCDHS,
such as the DRINC (Drinking Reasons Inter-National Collaboration) TEAM, involving researchers from more than ten countries, or the DECENT WORK TEAM, including researchers from North and South America, Europe, Israel and Australia.
The IPCDHS has been closely associated during this period with three doctoral programs of the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Coimbra, having as responsible persons members of the IPCDHS, and also counting among the associated teaching staff a significant share of IPCDHS members: the Inter-University Doctoral Program in Education Psychology (in association with the Faculty of Psychology of Lisbon) and the doctoral programs in Cognitive Psychology and in Work, Organization and Human Resources Psychology. A significant number of PhD dissertations addressing topics within the scope of IPCDHS research were developed and concluded as a result. Several post-doc projects,extending through several years, were also hosted and supported by the IPCDHS under supervision of integrated members, which significantly contributed for the record of publications and for promoting specific lines of research within the frame of the strategic plan of the IPCDHS.
Innovation was promoted as a major organizer of scientific research, with an ultimate view at useful knowledge transfer. One significant innovative product was the Mental Health Project (http://mhealth.cogtech.com.br/): based on scientific and technical cooperation between the IPCDHS, the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the Universidad de Extremadura, Spain, and funded by the MAPFRE Foundation (Spain), an online platform was developed within the domain of healthcare addressing several dimensions of the wide-spreading use of digital technologies and social networks. A worth noticing example of knowledge transfer under an inter-disciplinary perspective concerns the IPCDHS involvement in the Energy for Sustainability Initiative (EfS-UC), which brings together researchers from more than a dozen R&D Units of the University of Coimbra (member of the European Platform of Universities Engaged in Energy Research, Education and Training: EPUE), in close connection to private companies and other institutional players, for converging work in the area of sustainable energy consumption. This involvement took several forms, from formal participation in a collaborative funded project addressing the development of demand-response smart energy technologies to engagement in specific task missions (promotion of energy saving behaviors in the University Campus), and led to the development of specific know-how within the IPCDHS concerning web-based experiments and consumers' preferences analyses (e.g., MaxDiff and choice-based conjoint models).

During the 2013-2017 period numerous partnerships were launched and reinforced (http://www.uc.pt/en/fpce/IPCDHS/Parcerias), having as result the association of the members of the unit with scientific organization of events, e.g.:
a) International Conference \"Situação de Sem-Abrigo e Inclusão Laboral\" (Homelessness and Work Inclusion). Joaquim A. Ferreira, Eduardo R. Santos, Lara Figueiredo, & Sara Rocha (Orgs). Universidade de Coimbra, June 19, 2015. During the conference were presented results from a study carried on the cities of Coimbra, Aveiro, Vila Nova de Gaia, and Porto, in cooperation with 20 institutions that work with homeless individuals. Quantitative and qualitative data were presented and discussed. Several national and international researchers made significant contributions to the Conference, such as Fernando Fajardo Bullón (Professor and Researcher at Universidad de Extremadura, Spain) and Isabel Baptista (Senior Researcher from Centro de Estudos para a Intervenção Social-CESIS and Portuguese representative of the European Observatory on Homelessness from European Federation of National Organizations who Work with Homeless Individuals - EOH/FEANTSA). Results of the study and the International Conference were widely disseminated in the Media. Project funded by European Social Fund. http://www.poatfse.qren.pt/upload/docs/2015/Estudos/RELAT%C3%93RIO%20SSAIL-807.pdf
b) Reinserção Profissional de Desempregados: Procura Ativa e Padrões Motivacionais (Ocupational Reintegration of Unemployed Individuals: Active Job Search and Motivational Patterns), 2014. Joaquim Armando Ferreira, Eduardo R. Santos, Luís Alcoforado, Raquel Azevedo Freitas & Diana Fernandes (Orgs). Results of study were disseminated through a Conference held at the University of Coimbra, involving researchers from the Faculty of Psychology and Education, University of Porto and University of Algarve. Participated in the conference professionals from Employment Centers, Vocational Psychologists, and graduate students. Several papers, articles in national and international journals resulted from the study. Report of the study can be seen at: http://www.igfse.pt/upload/docs/2015/EstudoPOATFSE_universidade_coimbra.pdf
