The HUB teams

INESC Brussels HUB articulates its effort through the work of teams composed of representatives from all the INESC institutes. Their work has a multiple focus: strategy development, capacity-building, policy analysis, contributions to the  development of public policy, and definition of funding priorities. They also set the goals for INESCs’ collaboration with other EU public  and private research organisations, large and small industrial stakeholders, independent EU  associations, networks, platforms and the European institutions.

Thematic Work Groups

Our thematic teams are at the heart of the HUB’s activities in European programmes. They deal with characterisation and foresight studies, landscape analysis, strategy development, capacity building and networking.

The thematic teams are long-term teams that bring together experts in their respective domain and ensure that the adequate and pertinent activities defined in the multi-annual strategy are adequately implemented.

There are new thematic work groups being shaped according to the insitution’s need and strategy for the period of the triennial strategic plan.
