welcome to 2030!

CTM-INESC TEC 2030! Still 15 years to go but already 30 years doing research and post-graduate advanced training in the area of telecommunications and multimedia. Proudly contributing to society, with impact in the economy through successful spin-offs and technology transfer.

This is what we are.

This is the result of our most important partnerships: our young researchers, our industrial partners, our senior staff members, our associate members and all the scientific community. In this 2016 CTM Open Day we want to show not just our most recent achievements, demonstrated through prototypes and on-going PhD studies, but also to promote a think tank session on the future seen from outside and seen from inside: Telecommunications and Multimedia in 2030.

We will be there. We want you to be with us!
