LARSyS announces Seminar series to foster collaboration

Hugo Nicolau

The Laboratory of Robotics and Engineering Systems is launching a Seminar series to foster cooperation between the four research units. In this sense, the seminars will invite LARSyS researchers to present a research project to the LARSyS community. Additionally, time will be dedicated to preparing and submitting research projects. The collaboration with the Pre-Award network of Instituto Superior Técnico will help the community learn the best practices to apply to upcoming calls successfully.

The first edition is scheduled for May 24 at 3 pm at Centro de Congressos of Instituto Superior Técnico. During the seminar, the researcher Hugo Nicolau (Interactive Technologies Institute), will present the project DCitizens he is coordinating. DCitizens is a Twinning project that aims to foster research in Digital Civics in Lisbon, empowering citizens and non-state actors to co-create, actively shape agendas, make decisions about service provision, and make such provisions sustainable and resilient. After that, Marta Candeias (IST Pre-Award Network) will share relevant knowledge about an application for calls of EU twinning research projects.
