LASIGE was invited by Direção Geral do Ensino Superior (DGES, Directorate-General for Higher Education) to participate in the “Study and Research in Portugal” initiative, to support the promotion and dissemination of Portuguese higher education, institutions, and national educational offer.
This international promotion intends to assist higher education institutions attracting international students and researchers, promote Portuguese higher education and facilitate the establishment of partnerships and strategic cooperation, as well as intensify the activities developed abroad in this context.
Our researchers promptly answered to this challenge. Thibault Langlois, from France, a senior researcher, shared the following (testimony #2):
"I arrived in Portugal in 1994 with an EEC grant. I worked at INESC in the group of Neural Networks and from 1995 I taught in the department of electrotechnics at IST. Since 2001 I am a professor at FCUL (ULisboa). Today I develop my research activities in the field of Machine Learning applied to multi-media data, at LASIGE, a laboratory that has been rated as excellent several times over the past few years."
