The contract for the construction of the ESTHER hosting building has been signed today between IST and Engitetra.
The Instituto Tecnológico e Nuclear (ITN), a scientific campus located in Sacavém, in the northern outskirts of Lisbon, has been scheduled to be integrated into IST. This leads to a redefinition of the location of the ESTHER Kinetic Shock-Tube hosting building, which will be built – along with other new laboratories pertaining to IPFN – in the Sacavém ITN campus. The previous architecture plan for the hosting building has been essentially retained, with the exception that the hosting facility will now be a standalone building instead of being integrated into a larger building.
The architecture plan for the ESTHER hosting laboratory has been finalized.
The ESTHER laboratory will be located in the premises of the Taguspark IST campus, as a first section of a larger building which will host the IPFN and INESC laboratories in the future.
