INESC-ID awarded close to €1 million in FCT research funding
INESC-ID has been awarded shy of one million euros in FCT funding from the latest call for research projects, in a spread of Research, Development and Innovation corresponding to over a quarter of the successfully-funded projects across its two relevant evaluation panels.
On 27 July FCT released the results of the 2022 call for R&D projects across all scientific domains. Of the 630 projects selected to share a funding pot of 74,8 million euros, eight involve INESC-ID researchers, with: six projects coordinated by INESC-ID principal investigators, one project co-coordinated by an INESC-ID researcher and another in which INESC-ID researchers will collaborate.
Of the 57 applications deemed eligible for evaluation across the two panels — “Computer and Information Sciences and Informatics” (CISI) and “Electrical and Electronic Engineering” (EEE) — covering the six funded projects coordinated by INESC-ID PIs, only 22 were successful. This means that INESC-ID alone swooped-up 27% of the total number of projects awarded funding across the CISI and EEE panels.
Advancing the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), these eight projects cover two FCT funding modalities (“Scientific research and technological development projects” and “Exploratory projects”), a wide range of topics and six of INESC-ID’s eleven research areas: Distributed, Parallel and Secure Systems (DPSS), Automated Reasoning and Software Reliability (ARSR), Artificial Intelligence for People and Society (AIPS), High Performance Computing Architectures and Systems (HPCAS), Graphics and Interaction (GI), Information and Decision Support Systems (IDSS).

OLISSIPO Workshop: “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango”
The 3rd Edition of the workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” will take place online on November 14-15, 2023.
The topic of the workshop is metabolism in general. As in the previous cases, a special focus will be placed on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects of metabolism, 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.
More details will soon be provided but initial information may be already found here.
- Barbara Bakker (Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Groningen, The Netherlands)
- Igor Cestari (Institute of Parasitology, McGill University, Montréal, Canada)
- Vassily Hatzimanikatis (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland)
- Steffen Klamt (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Magdeburg, Germany)
- Ina Koch (Goethe Universität, Frankfurt am Main, Germany)
- Laura-Isobel McCall (San Diego State University, US)
Besides the talks given by the above Keynote speakers, there will be two sessions, one per day, of 30 minutes each, dedicated to a discussion of some specific open questions. More details on these will be provided very soon.The workshop will take place in the afternoons, from 2pm to 5:30pm CET time.
