Development in Action
“Development in Action” - DiA - Meetings are a series of VERY INFORMAL meetings organised by members of the SPDB. We get together once every three months (generally alternating between IGC, IMM, CEDOC & FCUL). Usually three junior scientists present novel results (preferably unpublished results/observations) or, alternatively, post-docs and PIs can present new and challenging research ideas. The presentations should last 15 min followed by 15-20 min discussion. We also organise DiA Meetings with our “out-of-Lisbon” members in mind: so far, such meetings have been held at the Universities of Algarve, Minho and Porto. The objective is to organize one of these full day Special DiA meetings once a year.
