Where Ideas Grow

Annual Meeting 2022
11 November 2022



i3S will organize the 9th edition of its Annual Meeting on November 11, 2022, at Casa de Vilar, in Porto.

Unlike previous i3S Annual Meetings that run throughout two days, this year´s event will only last one day. This format was chosen due to the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic at the time decisions had to be made. We also thought it would make more sense to have it closer to the i3S because of the short format.

Being i3S the largest research institute in Health and Life Sciences in Portugal, this Annual Meeting is an important moment to build synergies and define new goals.  This year, the event will feature a program that will include lectures by four invited scientists, external to i3S. The program will give special attention to moments that promote discussions among participants and will have sessions dedicated to strengthening the participation and success of i3S researchers in applications for individual funding and international projects.

Finally, there will also be time for informal activities to get to know each other.

As usual, we count on the participation of ALL that are part of the vast i3S community, to talk about successes, progress, and challenges, past, and future!
