I hold a PhD in Information and Communication in Digital Platforms (U.Porto-U.Aveiro). Currently, I work as an assistant professor at Faculty of Arts and Humanities of U.Porto (FLUP). I am also a researcher and member of the board of Centre for Research in Communication, Information and Digital Culture (CIC.Digital Porto) and, more recently, of the Centre for Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship - Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering (CITE-INESCTEC). My scientific production includes one book and dozens of papers related with my interest fields: information management, services management, innovation management and entrepreneurship. I am member of the board of CEdUP (Entrepreneurship Club of the University of Porto) and co-founder and voluntary member of V.IVE! (Living the Innovation and Entrepreneurship at U.Porto). I was a senior staff member in private companies (1985-1996), information manager / archivist at the Municipality of Vila do Conde (1998-2004) and teacher in the Specialization Course of Documental Sciences at University of Coimbra - Faculty of Arts (2000-2005).

A Systemic Information Management Model: from organizational flexibility to interoperability of the system

Authors
Pinto, MM;

Publication
REVISTA IBERO-AMERICANA DE CIENCIA DA INFORMACAO

Abstract
The paper introduces the Active and Permanent Information System Management Model (MGSI-AP). It results from an investigation that discussed concepts and perspectives about Information Management, positioning it as a transversal and applied area within Information Science, focused on info communicational flow, in a complex institutional context the Portuguese public University and related information services. The University is assumed in a complex and systemic double facet, between the formal organized system and the loosely coupled combinatory system. Here is presented one of the operationalization axes of the performed research and model. It highlights the close connection between Information Management and the area of studies of Information Production, framed by a theoretical-methodological proposal and operational modeling, which converge to an Information Management definition and the design of a Matrix of Components and Variables under analysis.

Abstract
Following the reflection around the emergence of “research university” in the context of the slow but progressive increase in value of science and technology and research and development in Portugal, a study applied to the knowledge transfer and the process of innovation in the university, in the context of a master dissertation in information science (IS), study area of information management, is presented. The university is one of the most important institutions in the context of the national innovation system (SNI), being part of its mission the creation and transfer of knowledge. At the University of Porto (U.Porto), projects, such as the University of Porto Innovation unit (U.Porto Inovação) and the Science and Technology Park of the University of Porto (UPTEC) seek to support the university's innovation value chain, promoting the reinforcement and solidification of knowledge transfer and of the relations between the university and companies, as well as the promotion and support to the creation of companies with a technological, scientific, and creative base, and the attraction of numerous innovation centers of national and international companies. This chapter points out an informational perspective on I&D+i (research and development and innovation) and entrepreneurship, based on the systemic theory and the quadripolar method, as theoretical and methodological guidance tools, and an information management/knowledge management approach of innovation models for the knowledge economy, the national and international referents, and corresponding set of indicators. An exploratory study, which allowed the identification of internal and external agents, the resources, the relations between actors and institutions, the processes and flows, and the main inputs and outputs, is presented. The most relevant result is embodied in a model of innovation indicators in an academic context and applied to the University of Porto.

O Modelo Sistémico de Gestão da Informação: da flexibilidade organizacional à interoperabilidade do sistema

Authors
Pinto, MM;

Publication
Revista Ibero-Americana de Ciência da Informação

Abstract
Apresenta o Modelo de Gestão do Sistema de Informação Ativa e Permanente (MGSI-AP), resultado de uma investigação que discutiu conceitos e perspetivas em torno da Gestão da Informação, posicionou-a como área transversal e aplicada em Ciência da Informação, com foco no(s) fluxo(s) infocomunicacional(ais), atendendo de forma particular aos que ocorrem em meio digital, no contexto de uma instituição complexa – a universidade pública portuguesa – e respetivos serviços de informação. Aborda um dos eixos da operacionalização da investigação realizada e do modelo desenvolvido. Nele se destaca a estreita ligação da Gestão da Informação à área de estudo da Produção Informacional. A universidade, foco do estudo, é abordada numa dupla faceta sistémica e, consequentemente, complexa, isto é, entre o sistema organizado formal e o sistema combinatório de feição loosely coupled. A formulação de uma proposta teórico-metodológica e de modelação operacional convergiram para uma definição de Gestão da Informação.
