Advanced Production and Intelligent Systems Associated Laboratory
Fernando Lobo Pereira, founder of the ARISE Associated Lab of which he was Scientific Coordinator, passed away on June 17th, 2022. He was 65 years old. A person of immense sympathy and generosity, he leaves an enormous scientific legacy. One of the biggest Portuguese names in the areas of control, dynamic optimization, impulsive systems, coordination and control of multiple dynamic systems, autonomous systems, as well as control applications in mobile robotics, power and manufacturing systems, With condolences to the family, colleagues and friends The Advanced Production and Intelligent Systems Associated LaboratoryARISE
The ARISE AL undertakes scientific, and technical research of excellence, and innovation activities The pursuit of these objectives relies on a very significant increase of highly qualified PhD researchers The National Economic Recovery Plan targeting the increase in value and in resilience of the economy provides key tenets to the R&D drivers The attraction of foreign investment
ARISE AL is in a unique position to respond and contribute to the enhancement of a wide variety of key public policies of the diverse ENEI 2014-20 strategic axis that transverses a wide swath of the national economy, notably, Production Technologies, Materials, Energy, Mobility, Information and Communication Technologies, with, also a significant relevance on Habitat, Economy of the Sea , Health, Agriculture, and Forestry. Moreover, the ARISE LA will push pushing the boundaries of advanced and comprehensive Reindustrialization and Decarbonization of Production Systems in accordance with the EU Horizon strategies, and the United Nations imperative for the World Sustainable Development, while strengthening of the pertinent Research Infra-structures of the National Roadmap, and by taking advantage of the privileged European Commission national access channel PERIN.
It is important to point out here that the ARISE AL is fully aligned with the national governance in responding to the current crises by making its resources available to the deployment of the National Economic Recovery Plan. This targets the increase in value and in resilience of the national economy in which the ARISE AL will strongly contribute to the diversification of the products being manufactured in Portugal, to the increase of the economic efficiency of production processes, and to the increase of the added value of the national companies with emphasis in SMEs will be strongly promoted via strong participation in Mobilizing Projects, and the launching of innovative start-ups.

The European concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) means more than dealing with the ethical issues arising within research itself it involves considering the wider dimensions of science and innovation already in basic research and technological development. To follow the RRI strategy ARISE researchers carry out research with the highest international and ethical standards, promote team spirit and collaborative work, respect all patient and individuals confidentiality and rights, promote the translation of research findings to the public, recognize the Institute’s social responsibility through its outreach activities, promote a culture of mutual respect and equal opportunity within the Institute and, achieve high standards of corporate governance. In ARISE the gender dimension is integrated and followed through at all stages of the research cycle, following the guidelines set by the ERA on Gender equality and gender mainstreaming in research. Particular attention is paid to ensuring gender balance subject to the situation in our field of research. As demonstrated in Women in ScienceShe Figures 2013 from the European Commission, women are more numerous at undergraduate levels but under represented at PhD and higher levels, especially in engineering. As such, ARISE will actively aim at achieving gender parity and equality during the recruitment process. This will include the goal of ensuring that at least 40% of the under represented gender participate in committees involved in recruitment and in establishing and evaluating research programmes. The objective is also to ensure that at least 40% of the under represented are recruited in the employment of postdoctoral researchers.
ARISE endorses the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity, adopted in the framework of the H2020 Program.
Innovation is not just represented by introducing or implementing new ideas or methods. The definition of innovation can be defined as a process that involves multiple activities to uncover new ways to do things. It should not be confused with creation since this can be defined as the act of making, inventing, or producing something. However, new innovations can be realized with creativity. People need to think outside the box in order to create incremental enhancements.

The host institutions have signed agreements to contract the researchers hired by the ARISE AL with FCT under the current proposal:
Advanced Masters in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions
European Master in Building Information Modelling
Sustainable Constructions under natural hazards and catastrophic events
Waves, Acoustics, Vibrations, Engineering and Sound
Joint European Master in Tribology of Surfaces and Interfaces
Postgraduate programme: Advanced studIes in DigItisation of Manufacturing (jointly offered with Politecnico di Milano, University of Tartu and Grenoble INP).
Sustainability is understood as a form of intergenerational ethics in which the environmental and economic actions taken by present persons do not diminish the opportunities of future persons to enjoy similar levels of wealth, utility, or welfare.
The Arise AL team has established cooperation and partnership relations with relevant European and international research institutions.
Here (link) it can be verified the list of these ones.
The ARISE AL undertakes scientific, and technical research of excellence, and innovation activities focused in Manufacturing and other more general Productions Systems, Construction, Robotics, Materials, Energy, Management, and Information Technologies, built on solid scientific foundations, in order to support the renovation and the reindustrialization of national production systems, and built environment on decarbonization framework able to ensure the environmental, and socio-economic sustainability.
The pursuit of these objectives relies on a very significant increase of highly qualified PhD researchers of the ARISE AL groomed towards the specific AL goals, on the strengthening of the pertinent research infra-structures of the national roadmap, and on a strong alignment with the ENEI 2014-20 strategic axis of Production Technologies, Materials, Energy, Mobility, Information and Communication Technologies, with, also a significant relevance on Habitat, Economy of the Sea , Health, Agriculture, and Forestry.
The National Economic Recovery Plan targeting the increase in value and in resilience of the economy provides key tenets to the R&D drivers of the ARISE AL R&D strategies. Production diversification, increased economic efficiency, and added value of the national production tissue with emphasis in SMEs will be strongly promoted via strong participation in Mobilizing Projects, and the launching of innovative star-ups.
The attraction of foreign investment will be actively sought to strength the current solid network with EU research institutions, and infrastructures in articulation with the pertinent pillars of the EU research strategy, as well as, the privileged European Commission national access channel PERIN (PORTUGAL-EUROPE R&I NETWORK).
