NOVA LINCS mission is to develop cutting-edge research in key areas of Computer Science and Informatics, contribute to advanced education in the field, and share the produced knowledge, results, and innovation with users and communities within society.

NOVA LINCS research roadmap targets the theme “Science and Engineering for the Global Software Ecosystem”. It unfolds in two lab-wide interacting streams: one on creating new principles and engineering for emergent computing and software ecosystems, another on developing innovative IT powered solutions for technical, societal, and interdisciplinary fields. We build on our portfolio of research achievements, on our ability to balance fundamental, applied research and problem driven innovation, and on thriving interactions with diverse external technology and knowledge users.

We are internationally known for high impact contributions and technological solutions in topics such as distributed data management, software modelling and requirements engineering, programming and verification languages, tools, and systems, knowledge representation and automated reasoning, multimedia information processing and interaction.
