Education Center

IST/ITN occupies a relevant position in the Portuguese science establishment. 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 local 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 Viva".
