Mission Statement

The ceremony for the opening of the Loures' Nuclear and Technological Campus of IST has taken place on the 5th July 2012 in the ITN Campus.

This campus emerges from the transition of the extinguished ITN, I.P. (ITN), its mission, its tasks and powers, to Instituto Superior Técnico (IST). This integration is regulated by the decree-law nr. 29/2012 of February 9 (approved by the Ministers Council on December 22-2011). This Campus is dedicated to promoting and implementing activities such as research and technology development, advanced training, professional specialization and improvement, in addition to the duty of supporting the Portuguese Government, both scientifically and technologically, in nuclear safety and radiology protection domains or other domains involving radiations and radioisotopes applications. In a near future, a master's degree (2nd cycle) is expected to be running in this campus.
