INESC Porto’s intervention in the industry and companies, its relevant scientific production and the quality of its human resources were some of the points that were considered on the last evaluation carried by the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). Following the motto “From Knowledge Production to Knowledge Valorisation”, INESC Porto is on the right track to continue its success. However, SAB recommends that INESC Porto defines more a concrete vision, mission and goals for the institution over the next years. After the visit that took place in 2006, last October, this international Board of experts sought to get to know the work developed by the six R&D Units and by the two autonomous groups that are an integrant part of INESC Porto LA (Associated Laboratory).
Born on the symbolic year of 2000, BIP is celebrating its 8th anniversary this November and, in order to celebrate this date, issue 88 was completely renovated with a more modern image and renovated structure. That is the virtue of the number 8… Congratulations to all of us!
