The research unit is part of a bigger structure that gathers different research areas of interest to the host institution, the Instituto Lusíada de Investigação e Desenvolvimento - ILID. The creation of ILID in 2005 fulfilled one of the strategic goals of the Host Institution since its recognition as a “Fundação” in 2003.
CLEGI’s Principal Investigator is responsible for the coordination of its activities and in conjunction with the coordination body of ILID, devises a strategy to support the sustainable development of research and development activities in the field of Industrial Processes and Industrial Management within the Research Unit.
The Research Unit comprises two lines of investigation that are complementary; Industrial Processes and Industrial Management. Each line of investigation is coordinated by a member of that unit, according to general guidelines approved yearly by ILID according to each member’s expertise.
Besides a permanent and close cooperation with industry, the Unit has the privilege of having as contributing members some renowned researchers, including from Portugal, Brazil and the United Kingdom. These researchers are active members of this Unit, providing valuable, independent advice regarding complex scientific and technical issues. Furthermore, these members also help the Unit to keep in touch with new developments, by exchanging ideas about their experience.
