In 2014 the effort to improve the external image of the institution continued. INESC-ID has organized and participated in several events of high visibility, such as:
These events/exhibitions allow not only a closer relation between INESC-ID and other scientific organizations, but also an important promotion of our activities near the general public and companies. These activities help to strength important connections in order to improve technology transference.
Besides the high impact exhibitions, INESC-ID also promoted external visits, mostly from other organizations and groups of external researchers or students from abroad, like Euroyouth, National Institute of Informatics (NII) and National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NIICT), and NATO Science for Peace and Security Program.
We also promoted the participation in initiatives with the goal of gathering different research groups allowing researchers to interact in different and relaxed environments. We participated in the Bike to Work Day, an initiative with the purpose to motivate people to come work by bike.
