Since 2011 Doctorate studies in Spain are fully inserted in the European Space of Higher Education. As a result, close collaborations have been made possible with particular interaction within the Iberian space, i.e. between Spain and Portugal.

This paper aims to approach the internationalization of research in heritage, mostly on the experience of doctoral theses which subject has been focused in Portugal, but with a look from the University of Seville. Case studies focusing on objectives, methodologies and research lines, as well as the results will be presented. Thus, this paper will discuss the added value of internationalization in research on heritage and the consequent development on the scale of the architectural object and the territory.

Continuity and relevance of the themes developed in doctoral programmes completed in research projects funded will be detailed and analysed. This paper also discusses the results of this interconnection of subjects focusing on Portuguese aspects, issues of architecture and heritage, developed in a Spanish University (University of Seville), to assess their relevance in the development of new lines of research in a Portuguese University (University of Beira Interior).

This paper will provide a debate on the results and experiences product of the internationalization of research in Heritage, emphasizing the interface between Architecture and Historical heritage, have developed new lines of research and a growing social awareness with contributions and consequences for Memory and Heritage management.
