IT will be present in the Tech@Portugal 2019, an event organized by the Agência Nacional de Inovação (ANI) with the aim of showcasing the country´s innovative potential in just one day. The event will be held on July 4th, from 9:30h, at the Centro de Congressos da Alfândega do Porto.
At the IT stand there will be some demonstrators of the technology developed in the institute, such as BITalino, a versatile and cost-effective biosignals acquisition system, a photonic processor for application in the new generation of communication satellites, and more.
From Interface Centers, Clusters, Laboratories and companies, there will be almost 200 entities present in the event. The projects and success stories that resulted from collaborations established between several entities within the national innovation system will be displayed in two different areas. One dedicated to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT´s), Production Technologies and Industry 4.0, and the other dedicated to Mobility, Circular Economy and Life Sciences projects.
The Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa (IPLisboa) attributed a Merit Diploma in the Field of Technologies and Engineering to Pedro Pinho, a Professor of Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa (ISEL) and a researcher from the Radio Systems group of IT in Aveiro. The diploma distinguished Pedro Pinho for his activity in the field over the last three years.
“This distinction is a recognition of the work done over the last few years, within the radio systems group of IT, in solving different engineering problems with relevance in society, where some products make the transition from prototypes and became commercial”, said Pedro Pinho.
Every year the IPLisboa, sponsored by Caixa Geral de Depósitos, attributes Scientific Awards and Awards for Recognition of Activities with Relevance in the Community, as a way to encourage, value and recognize the scientific work of professors and to promote an interaction with the community for the affirmation and development through the identification of new challenges and the discovery of solutions, transferring knowledge and disseminating science, technology and the arts.
