Many of the methodologies and techniques applied in the systems developed by the Institute stem from Doctoral Theses and Master’s Dissertations and other academic works of PUC-Rio. This characteristic highlights the relevance of the research carried out in the university for the Brazilian technical-scientific development.

Currently, the Institute houses more than  400 researchers and collaborators,  including approximately  100 professionals with  Master’s  Degree and 60 professionals with Doctoral Degrees, many of them with international experience.
