Conversations around a candle is a dissemination project on combustion, by João Ventura, targeting people interested in science, but not necessarily with scientific training. Hence many subjects are introduced from everyday phenomena familiar to readers, and then explained to them using accessible language.
A team of researchers from the University of Lisbon and the Carnegie Mellon University’s Department of Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) investigated how additive manufacturing (AM) could contribute to distributed manufacturing. They examined whether AM will disrupt this central model, specifically in the context of spare parts for the aviation industry, where being able to quickly print parts instead of stockpiling them would be attractive.
The National Science Summit '19 is taking place at Centro de Congressos de Lisboa, aiming at promoting a broad debate on the main topics and challenges of the scientific agenda beyond the world of research, stimulating the participation and interaction between researchers, the business sector and the general public.
Professor Paulo Ferrão, co-founder of IN+, is the new president of COST – the European Cooperation in Science and Technology, for the next two years. The announcement was made at COST Executive Board meeting, held last 20th June, in Brussels.

MIT Portugal seed funding has been awarded to the Industrial Performance Cluster (IPC) at MIT to conduct a joint project with researchers from the Instituto Superior Técnico Lisbon (IST) and the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS).
Centre for Innovation, Technology and Policy Research
We are a cross-disciplinary research venue, acting to integrate scientific research in technology, innovation and public policy, striving to promote the sustainable application of science. Institutionally, IN+ operates at Técnico Lisboa and is a member of the associate laboratory LARSyS.
Our activities brings together researchers from various research areas, often called laboratories, who join efforts to achieve a sustainable society, by cooperating with industry and fostering a scientific culture in our spaces, fellows and communities.
