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 Usually three junior scientists present novel results (preferably unpublished results/observations) or, alternatively, post-docs and PIs can present new and challenging research ideas.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.

The present organising committee is: Ana Teresa Tavares, chair (CEDOC), Dalila Silva (IMM), Inês Antunes (FCUL), Rita Aires (IGC) and Rita Gorgulho (CEDOC). Furthermore, Tatiana Resende (i3S, UPorto) and Tomás Pais de Azevedo (UAlgarve) give local support during the Special DiA meetings. They can be reached at:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
