Pedro Pontes, Ricardo Cautela, Ana Moita and António Moreira (IN+) were nominated for the 2019 Hartnett-Irvine Award of ICHMT, with the paper "Effect of pattern geometry on bubble dynamics and heat transfer on biphilic surfaces", presented in July 2019 at the 14th International Conference
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.
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.
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.
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.
