On 9 and 10 July 2020, will take place at the Culturgest's Small Auditorium (Lisbon, Portugal) the 8th International Advanced Course on Liquid Interfaces, Drops And Sprays (LIDESP 8), organized by IN+/IST together with Prof. Amirfazli (York University, Toronto, Canada), Prof. Bertola /University of Liverpool, UK) and Prof. Marengo (University of Brighton, UK).
On January 24th, a group of Aerospace Engineering students from Técnico launched a self-built rocket under the RED project (Rocket Experiment Division). Named Aurora 2.0, this was the third launch by RED and considered a success, as it was possible to recover the rocket and analyze some aspects of its performance.
The IV International Caparica Symposium on Nanoparticles/Nanomaterials and Applications 2020 (ISN2A 2020) took place in Costa de Caparica the 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd of January 2020. IN+ contributed with a selected poster entitled "Carbon nanotubes synthesis by impinging flame", authored by Luísa Marques, André Duarte, Alexandre Gamboa and Edgar Fernandes.
A range extender (RE) is a device used in electric vehicles (EVs) to generate electricity on-board. This paper describes an efficiency-oriented RE based on a small motorcycle engine modified to the efficient over-expanded cycle. The results indicate that it is possible to have an efficient solution, in-line with the electric mobility sustainability paradigm, which can solve most of the shortcomings of current EVs in a sustainable way.
The first meeting of the European IMPROVEMENT, a project on zero energy balance public buildings, took place at Cordoba University. The project includes partners from Portugal, Spain and France, and aims to solve the challenge of integrating renewable energy systems (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) in public buildings (EPs) in the SUDOE region.
José das Neves Rodrigues e João Miguel Pires are the most recent doctoral graduates in IN+. Both PhD candidates, under the doctoral program Engineering Design and Advanced Manufacturing - Leaders for Technical Industries, were approved with distinction by unanimity.
IN+/IST in collaboration with ADENE are seeking Master and PhD students in various areas of Engineering and related interdisciplinary fields, to develop research into the study and analysis of innovation incentives and policies for sustainable building, energy rehabilitation of buildings and promotion of energy efficiency.
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.
LARSyS was graded as EXCELLENT by the latest FCT evaluation panel, maintaining the same grade as the previous evaluation. According to the evaluation report, "LARSyS is a strong R&D Unit with excellent international visibility, strong publication venues and participation in professional society activities".
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.
