MyNPK is a smart photonics solution that combines spectroscopy and Artificial Intelligence to quantify nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK) in liquid fertilisers - in situ and in real time. The technology was developed by the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) and allows to manage and optimise the use of fertilisers according to the plants' nutritional needs. The goal? To improve production, reduce fertiliser waste and reuse, minimise water consumption and environmental impact. Thanks to this technology, INESC TEC won the third place in the Innovation Prize awarded by the European Association EARTO (European Association of Research and Technology Organisations).

A group of INESC TEC researchers was recently in the Arctic collecting environmental DNA samples in extreme conditions. The team used a technology called biosampler, which facilitates the task of biologists who will then analyse the samples. The biosampler was coupled to a robot that allowed the autonomous operation of the two Portuguese technologies. The researchers returned to Portugal with samples, collected in different points of the Arctic - now under a laboratory analysis.
