Vision and mission
From knowledge generation to science-based innovation.
As a free-thinking and diverse community, we take on bold science, technology, and innovation challenges, empowering talent, collaborative ecosystems, and public policies that make a difference in our economy and society.
To be an inspiring and empowering force, driving the science and technology of digitally-enabled systems into overcoming society’s challenges.
INESC TEC uses a comprehensive and inclusive framework of scientific domains to increase its impact and improve cohesion among its researchers while also facilitating communication with the wider community. The eight scientific domains are: artificial intelligence, bioengineering, communications, computer science and engineering, photonics, power and energy systems, robotics and systems engineering and management. These are forums for discussing and planning the institute’s research trajectory, and platforms for strategising, with medium- to long-term goals.
