INESC Winter Meeting

Organised in collaboration with INESC Holding, the event is scheduled for January 25th and 26th, 2024, and it will be held in Porto. This is an internal event of the INESC group – external participants by invitation only.
Preliminary agenda available below.

The primary goal is to bring together individuals from all five INESC institutes, fostering an environment that encourages networking, forging new connections, and collectively engaging in a forward-thinking exercise regarding the future of our research fields and the positioning of the INESC group within the European landscape.

These moments of presence and open dialogue play a pivotal role in shaping INESC’s successful European positioning. Your ideas and insights are highly regarded, and we look forward to your active participation in this event.

On January 25th there will be a welcome lunch, followed by an afternoon dedicated to collaboration, openness, and curiosity. The event will have a participatory approach, and will be guided by Dirk Stockmans, a highly experienced facilitator who has worked for the European Commission for the last 30 years.

On January 26th, a senior administration and management committee will be held. Participants will be selected by each institute administration. There is no need to register for this day.
