INESC TEC participates in six infrastructures of FCT's national roadmap
INESC TEC is part of the National Roadmap of Research Infrastructures of Strategic Relevance (RNIE), created by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) and recently updated. The Institute coordinates two infrastructures and is a partner of four other research infrastructures.
04th June 2020
The Roadmap, focused on excellence, cooperation and internationalisation, aims to promote the consolidation of Portuguese scientific and research infrastructures relying on knowledge and the ability to provide services to the community in several areas.
INESC TEC coordinates the Smart Grids and Electric Vehicles Laboratory (SGEVL), which constitutes a physical space integrating systems and equipment designed to support the development and testing of solution and pre-industrial prototypes, thus promoting the active and intelligent management of electric grids, according to scenarios characterised by the progressive integration of distributed energy resources and electric vehicles.
INESC TEC also coordinates the TEC4SEA - Modular Platform for Research, Test and Validation of Technologies supporting a Sustainable Blue Economy, in partnership with the Centre for the Technological Research of Algarve (CINTAL). The TEC4SEA is a platform designed to support multidisciplinary research, development and testing of different solutions in fields such as marine robotics, telecommunications and sensing technologies, so they can be used in oceanic environment operations.
Moreover, INESC TEC is also a partner of four other infrastructures: WindScanner Portugal, C4G - Collaborative for Geosciences, EMSO - European Multidisciplinary Seafloor Observatory and Air Center.
The 2020 update of the RNIE introduces the 16 new integrated infrastructures since April 2019, and systematises information on all 56 infrastructures that are now part of the Roadmap.
