Where Ideas Grow

Events Management Unit

The Events Management Unit (EMU) is devoted to the organization and management of scientific events, namely meetings, conferences, courses, workshops and bigger congresses.

EMU provides personalized service to organizers, which includes planning the event (venue, budget), the production of dissemination tools and respective implementation, the event management and support (travel and accommodation arrangements, registrations and abstract submission management, event supporting in loco), as well as final balance and reporting.

In this context, EMU supports the i3S mission of developing research in health sciences and technologies at the highest international level, through the effective development and management of different types of scientific events that communicate the high quality of i3S competences and researchers.

Over the last few years, EMU organized more than 90 events, among which some of the most relevant in the fields of Cancer, Rare Diseases, Genetics, Animal Welfare, Scientific Careers, and Biomaterials, both at national and international levels. This number includes not only physical events, but also online events. Collectively, these events drew in more than 7000 participants. Also, i3S hosted more than 50 practical courses managed by EMU in collaboration with the Advanced Training Unit.

EMU is also involved in the organization of i3S seminars. Almost 400 seminars were organized in i3S, including more than 100 by international and world-renowned invited speakers.
