Participation of Professor Doctor Fernando
Carvalho Rodrigues
In an analogy to the "Tree of Knowledge" proposed by Denis Diderot and Jean le Rond D'Alembert, the ICRSC 2019 Organizing Committee invited Professor Fernando Carvalho Rodrigues to discuss and develop the topic of risk taxonomy with the elaboration of a (new) approach.
Professor Fernando Carvalho Rodrigues is a retired professor of science at IADE - Instituto de Arte, Design e Empresa, member of the National Academy of Sciences of Lisbon and the Academy of Navy, as well as the International Society of Astronautics.

In the 1980s, with a consortium of companies, he designed and mentored SATCART, a NATO Remote Detection Program. At that time, it was able to bring together different industrial investors and established a multidisciplinary team to successfully design, construct and launch the first Portuguese satellite (Po-Sat1) (1993). He was one of the founders of EID-Electronics Research and Development Company in 1983 (now Rhode & Schwarz).
The de-industrialization of the country since 1992, and its main research interests in various aspects of the systems would guide him to the NATO Scientific Program, both in the Division of Science for Peace and the Emerging Security Challenges Division ( 1999), where he promoted programs and projects in which the Human and Machine systems interact, and concretized, in many areas of scientific knowledge, a set of ideas across the boundaries of what was then known having become acknowledged for designing and projecting an explosive detection program that would later be known as Standex, involving NATO countries and Russia, based on the integration of complex systems (2007).
He has published more than 200 articles in many scientific journals on various subjects. He has supervised more than twenty PhD Theses since 1979. He has been awarded the Pfizer Prize (1977), twice with the Gulbenkian Prize (1978 and 82), the Good Hope Prize (1991), the Albert J.
