As part of the new evaluation from the "Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia", since the beginning of 2015:

The ICSEO instrumentation group is a part of the "Interdisciplinary Center for Astrophysics CENTRA as the instrumentation and computing part (CENTRA-SIM)

The CCIAM climate change expert team is a part of the Center for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes CE3C as the climate change core team.

Within this new framework, the SIM team continues working intensively to maintain research with societal impacts at the highest level.

The Laboratory for Systems, Instrumentation and Modeling in Science and Technology for Space and the Environment (SIM), was a research center established in 2003 , associated with the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (FCUL) and funded by "Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia" thought its "Programa de Financiamento Plurianual".

The SIM laboratory has two research groups (ICSEO and CCIAM) that includes researchers from the University of Lisbon and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) that provide the facilities, infrastructure and technical collaboration to accomplish our research goals.
