IST/ITN occupies a
relevant position in the Portuguese science
The areas of expertise of the Institute, notably
those related to the use of ionizing radiations, the
research infrastructures and specialized equipments
installed (some of them unique in the country), and
the quality of its research staff allow it to offer
excellent opportunities for:
(A) Advanced scientific/technical training of
students and young scientists in current areas of
activity of the institute (environment, study and
preservation of the cultural heritage, materials
science and technology, life sciences, etc.). The
trainees can either participate in the research
teams of ongoing projects, or attend master courses
organized in collaboration with universities. Under the supervision or co-supervision of
scientists, a large number of young students
prepares their final degree thesis, MSc thesis, PhD
thesis, or undergo pos-doc training programmes.
(B) Training for
professionals dealing with ionizing radiations
and its applications in several domains of activity.
Its Education Center that, namely, organizes courses where safe manipulation
of equipments that use radioactive sources is taught by certified teachers.
On the other side, IST/ITN also promotes
regularly initiatives to outreach to the general public, giving particular
attention to young people. For this purpose, the Institute opens its doors to
students from high schools, receiving typically one school per week. Also along
this line, contributes to stimulate the interest of young people in
experimental science, by offering one or two weeks hands-on training to high
school level students at its experimental facilities. These activities are
carried on in collaboration with external entities, notably, the "Agência Ciência
