Portuguese spin-off ensures EUR 2 million in international competition to fight against Alzheimer's disease

Description
There is a Portuguese spin-off that has just received EUR 2 million to fight Alzheimer's disease through the use of Artificial Intelligence and Photonics. The award was given by Wild Card, an EIT Health's acceleration programme - the largest healthcare consortium in the world - for disruptive healthcare projects, which selected the startup from hundreds of projects. iLoF - the name of the spin-off of the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) - will be present for the first time at the Web Summit in Lisbon.

The digitalisation of the European power system starts with EUR 36 million and 51 entities

Description
InterConnect – is the name of the European project that has just started and which brings together 51 European entities that will develop and test advanced solutions for the digitalisation of the power system. There will be EUR 36 million available for this project, which is the biggest European project ever led by a Portuguese institution. The Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) will be responsible for the project and four other Portuguese institutions, like EDP Distribuição, SONAE MC, Schneider Electric Portugal and Domótica SA., will participate in it.

Portugal participates in a European project to anticipate climatic phenomena

Description
The melting in the Antarctica, monsoon disturbances, changes in the Atlantic ocean currents, reductions of ice in the Arctic sea and extreme droughts are examples of weather events with the potential to cause a domino effect and a cascade of dramatic changes in the environment. This way, understanding the mechanisms that lead to these events is of vital importance to prevent abrupt climate transitions and irreversible changes in the earth system.

A Portuguese team develops a painting robot that collaborates with humans

Description
It’s already possible to see humans and robots collaborating with each other in an effective way in the coating of complex and large-scale products in Portugal. Painting robots already existed, but one of their main limitations was related to their inability to paint large-scale products or those that had a complex geometry. The collaborative robotic cell developed in the European project FLEXCoating managed to overcome this limitation, promoting the cooperation between humans and robots through 3D sensors for workspace monitoring, object recognition and location, trajectory programming by demonstration, among other technologies.
