  • How can an external or invited person have temporary access to the IT services provided by DSI?

Access to computer services for external users (typically PhD students, professors and invited researchers, administrative staff from research institutes associated with IST and other equivalent situations) is made available by DSI through the creation of a temporary access (invitation).

In order to obtain temporary access to SI services, users should fill and deliver at SI front office or by, the following form:

The Invited Person document must be filled by the preson in charge of the unit stating the type and foreseen duration of the user link to IST.

The Guest Form is needed to create a Técnico ID and provide access to the Fénix platform for the user.

This type of access will have a maximum duration of 2 years, requiring explicit renewal after this period if the connection to IST prevails. For access renewal, the hosting researcher must sign again the Invited Person form, with revised dates and sent it to SI.
