2013 Scientific Performance

At the end of 2013 there were 28 PhD holding members and 59 researchers and post-graduation students working at the Institute, which in that year were responsible for the publication of 75 articles in peer-reviewed, 8 chapters of internationally edited books, 10 PhD and 36 MSc theses. Additionally, 86 communications were presented in international scientific conferences by members of IPC. This output is consistent with the trend of the last years, albeit with some variations from year to year. Concurrently, there was an undeniable consolidation of the international visibility of the members of the Institute, as a result of increasing editorial activities, of the consistent organization of scientific events and invitations for conferences and of the award of international prizes.
