DEI is directly connected to LIS (Computing and Systems Laboratory), an interface structure of I&D under TIC (Information and Communication Technologies) domain of IPN (Pedro Nunes Institute) for the realization of their mission of transferring the technology into the business fabric. Via this connection to DEI, LIS possesses competences within a wide range of areas of Computing and Communication technologies.
The Computing and Systems Laboratorium develops two types of activities. On one hand, LIS actively seeks to be envolved in consortium projects of research and development of national and international scope. On the other hand, it develops innovative and multidisciplinary projects under the provision of services with public and private entities, always with close collaboration with the client and using the most advanced technology.
