The main goal of Vulcano is to identify solutions and strategies to promote the development of a sustainable energy system in “islanded” energy systems. A modeling tool that tests different scenarios regarding demand, renewable energy share, storage and network capabilities will be developed. The tool will be tested and validated in the case-study of the Terceira Island, in Azores.

In its 10th edition in 2017, the internship programme GALP 20-20-20, funded by the Portuguese energy company Galp-Energia, consists of an academic partnership aimed at identifying rational energy systems and attitudes in industry. During six months, seven final year master students live in seven companies to develop an energy efficient project. The students take part in a competition that rewards the three best studies at each university.
ICLASS 2018 is the 14th International Conference on Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems. Organized by ILASS International, the umbrella organization for ILASS’ European, American and Asian global partners, ICLASS 2018 fosters an environment of engagement, collaboration, and education.

Smart interfaces should adapt to different situations, often requiring opposite wetting regimes. The micro and nano-patterning is often obtained by a trial and error approach. However, this approach is not much efficient. The link between the wetting regimes and the transport phenomena at interfaces is missing. The work proposed here establishes this link in a new method to design smart interfaces, pliable for precise heat and mass transfer control.

Dispersion of agents producing data at urban level leads to mixed results in applying indicators in different environments and sometimes with little gain in urban performance. This project will advance the science of urban systems modeling and data representation supported by urban “big data” collection and processing. An integrated and application-oriented research approach will be undertaken by focusing on urban interventions in Lisbon.
