Transversal Units
A common goal ties the entire i3S community and everyone plays their part in the fulfillment of the institute’s mission.
With over 800 researchers, i3S is a demanding machine. Our researchers’ heavy workload and busy schedule beget a need for support that has to be met. Transversal units are the answer to such need by either providing services directly to researchers or by implementing a strategy outlined in conjunction with the Board of Directors. Whatever the case, these Units evolve alongside the very growth of i3S.

Transversal units offer support and expertise in the following areas: advanced scientific training; benchmarking; science and corporate communication; events management; facilities management and maintenance; health, safety and quality in the workplace; information systems and technology; institutional affairs; laboratory support; library resources; postdoctoral and doctoral affairs; and technology transfer and programs.
