INESC TEC showcases innovative technology for areas such as health or sea

On 6 May, INESC TEC (INESC Technology and Science) will open its doors to showcase innovative technologies for areas such as health, sea, smartphones, music, multimedia, wireless networks, media and security. At this event, INESC TEC’s researchers will be displaying a total of 20 technologies. This initiative marks the beginning of the 30th anniversary celebrations of INESC TEC in Porto.

Technologies to plan breast cancer surgery, low-cost ECG monitors, tools to automatically analyse digital colposcopies, tools to predict the popularity of online news, apps to compose, manipulate and experience music, flying access points that provide Internet access in temporary events, underwater communications or wireless energy transfer are some of the examples of technologies that will be on display at INESC TEC.

The goal with the “CTM Open Day” (CTM – Centre for Telecommunications and Multimedia), one of INESC TEC’s 12 research centres, is not only demonstrate the institute’s capacity to innovate and produce high quality scientific results, but also to provide an opportunity to identify synergies and establish future partnerships, not only in Portugal, but also abroad.

“INESC TEC does not simply do fundamental research. Our goal is to cover the entire value chain  when designing a project, from knowledge production, to applied research, development, and finally, putting the product on the market. We produce and manage science and we keep improving our relationship with the corporate world. Proof of that is that, currently, 40% of our results are already integrated in the business processes of various companies,” states Augustin Olivier, Executive Advisor for the Board of INESC TEC.

Companies like EFACEC, InovRetail or Wavecom have already confirmed that they will be participating in this event to present the results of projects developed in collaboration with INESC TEC. Wireless communication solutions for electricity meters, platforms that measure the behaviour of consumers in retail environments, and microwave communications operating in free band, respectively, are some of the examples of technologies that will be showcased during the Open Day, and that are proof of an increasing relation with companies.

The “CTM Open Day” will take place at INESC TEC’s headquarters, at FEUP Campus, and the technologies will be displayed in Auditoriums A and B.
