IST in PREMiERE
IST is the host of PREMiERE through its association for research and development. Its role as host is evident, since all students in PREMiERE working towards a degree (Master or PhD) are officially enrolled in IST study programmes and the large majority of the research team has a formal contract with IST. All the theoretical and modelling work is performed at IST and IPFN.
