As Associate Laboratory since 2004, INESC-ID is periodically evaluated by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT).
This status is reserved for research institutions of great merit that have been recognized in external assessments as having the “capacity to cooperate in a stable, competent and efficient way in the pursuit of specific political, scientific and national technological objectives”.
The review is made by an international panel of experts, based on the R&D institutions’ activity reports and proposed strategic plans as well as on direct contacts with researchers and institutions, through site visits and/or interviews by the reviewers.
All R&D institutions are awarded a qualitative grade, which determines the level of funding to be awarded, until the next review takes place, or until a mid-term assessment is made.
INESC-ID most recent evaluation took place December 3rd, and with great effort of all INESC-ID members, we believe we were able to transmit all our passion and commitment.
Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango
Dates: November 18-19, 2021
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
