LARSyS


The Centre for Innovation, Technology and Policy Research IN+ is a co-founder of the associate laboratory LARSyS ("LAboratory of Robotics and SYStems in Engineering and Science"), which is funded through Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation (FCT). LARSyS brings together a research collaboration of four research centres, as follows:

Team-based research at LARSyS is fostered by thematic area, much like IN+, which allows for the exploitation of synergies, resources, and organizations in the various centres to explore new frontiers of knowledge in emerging topics.


Currently, LARSyS is organized in six thematic areas.

These areas, as well as the participation of the research units and of IN+ are shown in the table below:
