Dear ANICT members

Due to a very busy schedule these last weeks it was impossible for me to answer to all member queries regarding membership fees and to issue the corresponding receipts. This situation will be completely solved by May 25, 2012 (end of this week).

Reflexão sobre a Formação e a Avaliação dos Investigadores

A pedido da organização deste evento, divulgamos a seguinte informação:

Ao longo dos últimos meses um pequeno grupo preparou uma reflexão que agora se apresenta em Uma Reflexão sobre a Formação e a Avaliação dos Investigadores. As propostas aqui apresentadas foram postas à apreciação de um público limitado pelo círculo de contactos dos autores recebendo-se reacções muito interessantes que agora são incluídas no documento anexo. Estas propostas vão ser discutidas e apresentadas à Senhora Sec. de Est. Leonor Parreira no dia 4/Junho/2012, no Salão Nobre da Reitoria da Universidade de Lisboa. Convido-o a participar e, querendo, inscrever-se em

10ª edição das Bolsas de Investigação Científica Fundação BIAL

Tendo como objetivo incentivar a investigação centrada sobre o Homem, tanto sob os aspetos físicos como sob o ponto de vista espiritual, nomeadamente em áreas ainda pouco exploradas mas suscetíveis de profunda análise científica, a Fundação BIAL instituiu em 1994 um sistema de Bolsas de Investigação Científica. A 10ª edição dá agora lugar a abertura de um novo pacote de Bolsas.
