Instituto Superior Técnico (IST)

Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) is the largest and most reputed school of Engineering, Science and Technology and Architecture in Portugal, and a member of CLUSTER, a network of leading European Universities of Technology, attracting the top students in the country in the STEAM area.


IST has been involved, through the research center IPFN, in pan-europeans projects such as ELI and EuPRAXIA. The Institute for Plasmas and Nuclear Fusion (IPFN), is an Associated Laboratory for Plasma Physics, Nuclear Fusion and Intense Lasers – a status given by the Portuguese Ministry of Science to the top research units of high strategic relevance to the country.


In the EuPRAXIA-DN, we will take advantage of expertise in massively parallel simulations to investigate advanced superradiant laser-plasma accelerator based light sources in connection with the planned activities within the EuPRAXIA project.
