the nano satellite ISTNANOSAT-1
ISTNANOSAT-1, the nano satellite developed by students and teachers with the collaboration of AMRAD, was integrated into the “Fly your satellite” program of the European Space Agency (ESA). The team, involving researchers from IST, INESC-ID and IT, now comprises a group of six universities from across Europe that will have ESA’s support in validating and flying their satellites, with no final testing and launch costs .
The satellite is being built from scratch by the team. The detailed design of all satellite systems has been validated by ESA experts.
The launch will take place from the ISS in late 2019, beginning of 2019. ISS will be shipped to the ISS.
Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
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.
The program and more details are available here.
