Inês Lisboa integrates the team that received the “Alfredo da Silva Research Award

CARME researcher Inês Lisboa was part of the team of the project “CBmeter – a new device for early detection of type II diabetes mellitus”, winner of the “Alfredo Silva Research Award”, on June 30th.

In the category “Technological Innovation, Mobility and Industry”, this team added an important award for the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria.

The project “ShareFOREST”, led by the University of Aveiro and the Polytechnic of Leiria, and in partnership with OIKOS, was highlighted in the program “Portugal em Direto”, from Antena 1, last May 13. It counted with the participation of Maria Eduarda Fernandes, CARME researcher and Co-Responsible for the project, who commented on the importance of “broadening the debate in civil society” and considered that future decisions about forest management should be part of the Portuguese political agenda. The “ShareFOREST” project plans to develop and operationalize a methodology and agenda for public participation for the coastal forests affected by 2017 fires.

Action plan developed by CARME researchers is awarded

This Plan was developed by Professors Ana Sofia Lopes, Ana Sargento, and Maria Eduarda Fernandes, CARME researchers. It can be consulted in http://hdl.handle.net/10400.8/2755 and was the basis for several interventions in the urban regeneration of public spaces with the approximated value of 2.7 million euros.

CARME researcher was present in the digital debate of the Expresso Projects

        To reach the targets defined by 2050 in the Paris Agreement, the European carbon license market plays a fundamental role in this path. It was in this context that the CARME researcher, Maria Eduarda Fernandes, participated in the 9th digital debate of the “50 to 2050” project, last March, an initiative by Expresso and BP. With a central theme focused on “GHG Emission Licenses – The New Reality 2021-2030”, Maria Eduarda Fernandes mentioned that the “scarcity logic may not be enough to achieve the 2050 goals” even if she considers that the mechanism has been improved over the various periods of the market.
