The Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) is a research infrastructure with a national dimension, embodying a bold vision for the development of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Sciences in Portugal. IA is the largest research unit of this area in country, one of the scientific areas with the highest relative impact factor and highest average number of citations per article for Portugal. IA has a demonstrated ability to drive major astronomical projects, at all development levels: scientific and technical definition, instrument concept and design, construction and commissioning, and scientific exploitation.
The IA-ON5 meeting marks the fifth internal annual meeting of the IA team, where the progress of the research, outreach, and management activities will be discussed. With the participation of all IA members, IA-ON5 will be a major opportunity to discuss and keep improving IA’s strategy, as well as to foster synergies between IA groups across all activity areas.
Hope to see you all, this time in Anadia!
