2010 Scientific Performance

At the end of 2010 there were 26 PhD holding members and 78 researchers and post-graduation students working at the Institute, which in that year were responsible for the publication of 64 articles in peer-reviewed journals (11 other were in press), 9 chapters of internationally edited books (3 other were in press), and 5 PhD and 2 MSc theses. Additionally, 89 communications were presented in international scientific conferences, 6 articles were published in national journals and 2 patents were granted to, or applied for, 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.
