INESC-ID Distinguished Lecture Series

The INESC-ID Distinguished Lecture Series is designed to bring to the institute outstanding scientists, academics or practitioners to share their vision, and present their groundbreaking work. The series aims to promote a regular sequence of high quality seminars in the core areas of the lab. Invited speakers cover a broad range of interests, activity profiles, and different stages of the professional career, being selected among those that have raised significantly above their peers in one or more aspects of their activity. One of the main goals of the Distinguished Lecture Series is to encourage the interaction and promote discussion and exchange of ideas between the invited speakers and lab researchers.

The INESC-ID Distinguished Lecture Series was started in September 2012, offering high quality seminars on a regular basis.
