New autonomous technology allows to monitor aquatic microorganisms

There is a new autonomous technology that allows to monitor, collect and preserve the genetic material of the aquatic microorganisms almost immediately. The goal is to use these biological samples in comprehensive studies on the diversity and composition of the planktonic communities through the use of new technologies for the analysis of their genetic material. The Portuguese researchers responsible for the development of this autonomous biosampler have recently published these developments on the scientific journal PLOS ONE.

In 20 years, Portugal will have a 100% renewable trend in the power generation

“In 20/30 years, the most developed countries – and Portugal can be included in this group – will use a portfolio of generation technologies that is 100% tendentiously renewable in terms of the primary energies used such as solar, wind power, hidropower, biomass and even geothermal resources in order to satisfy the demand for power generation”, commented João Abel Peças Lopes, Associate Director of INESC TEC and Full Professor at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP). With the motto “Energy systems with 100% electrical energy resulting from renewable sources”, the debate on the energy systems of the future will begin in Porto on 29 May, the day in which it is celebrated the National Energy Day.

Telling stories in 360º videos is easier now

In 2017, under the innovation fund Digital News Initiative, Google funded a project of the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) in order to stimulate the innovation in the digital journalism. Less than two years later, INESC TEC developed the Augmented Video 360 – an editing and visualisation tool for 360º videos with dynamic annotations in order to improve narratives. That’s why telling stories using 360º videos is easier now.
