Observatório de Boas Práticas do IST


The ObervIST's prime objective is to identify, consolidate and disseminate internal processes that constitute good practices in order to contribute positively and efficiently to the reinforcement of the strategic areas defined for IST, by promoting their valorisation and replication and striving for the school's continued improvement.
