I have been actively involved in the European Mathematical Society (EMS): I was member of its Executive Committee in 2010-2012, and a member of its Meetings Committee (2010-17) and of its Publications Committee (2013-16). The EMS can only play a role in influencing science policies and science funding in Europe if many more mathematicians, european based and/or of european origin, became members of the EMS.

R&D Politics and More

While I was a professor at Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, I was member of its Scientific Board, a member of the Senate and the Head of the Math Department. I had a chance to make a few contributions, trying to influence several issues that arose brought to these boards. You can find below some of the texts that I wrote. Unfortunately, some of these are in portuguese, and no translation is available.
