Portuguese researcher finalist of the European Sustainable Energy Awards

Portuguese researcher Carla Silva Gonçalves is one of three finalists in the "Young Energy Trailblazer" category of the European Sustainable Energy Awards, promoted by the European Commission. The researcher at the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) developed mathematical models that allow reducing errors in predicting the generation of renewable-based electricity, contributing to increase the renewable energy sources in the power grid. The voting process is already open, until September 18 - here.

INESC TEC breaks world depth record in the exploration of flooded caves

A team of researchers from the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) set the record for exploration of the world’s deepest natural cave, the “Hranice Abyss” (Czech Republic), by sending an autonomous underwater vehicle up to 450 metres. The UX-1Neo is one of the most technologically evolved underwater robots in the world, and it was developed by INESC TEC, within the scope of the UNEXUP project.

Portuguese researchers created a drone-supported communication network to address natural disasters

Portuguese researchers created a drone-supported communication network to address natural disasters. The technology was developed by the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) - the only Portuguese partner of the international project ResponDrone – Situational Awareness System for First Responders. The project ended this year, and the Portuguese institute was responsible for developing the drone-supported wireless communication solution, which ensures contact between emergency teams on the ground and the command centres.

Researchers developed a technology to monitor Parkinson's patients outside clinical settings

Patients with Parkinson's disease will be able to monitor the symptoms associated with the disease and send data, in real time, to the healthcare professionals who follow them - from home, and via their mobile phones. This innovation in the health area is only possible thanks to the iHandUapp system, a mobile technology developed by the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC); it also features a web platform that aggregates the data and provides healthcare professionals with a record of the clinical evolution of patients.

Portuguese researchers will test hyperbaric system for the collection and life-support of deep-sea species

Researchers from A. Silva Matos Metalomecânica, Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC), Porto’s School of Engineering (ISEP), Portuguese Institute for Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) and Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR) developed a system dedicated to the collection and life-support of species up to 1000 meters deep. This solution enables bringing the species to the surface without any damage caused by pressure differences and keeping them alive for further studies. The first tests will take place between April 23 and May 2, aboard the Mário Ruivo research vessel.
