The 17th European Conference on Mixing will be held in 2021 in Porto, Portugal.
This successful conference series, which is organised by the European Federation of Chemical Engineering – Working Party on Mixing, has been running since 1974 and attracts academics and industrialists from all over the world to discuss progress on mixing technology, research and applications in the process industries.
The bid to organize its 2021 edition, MIXING 17, was proposed by Professor José Carlos Lopes, the Portuguese delegate to the Working Party on Mixing of EFCE.
The decision was known during the gala dinner MIXING 16, that took place between 9-12 September 2018 in Toulouse, France. At this conference, the Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM was represented by several researchers from the Mixing Team, led by Professor José Carlos Lopes, Professor Madalena Dias and Doctor Ricardo Santos.

The team of five LSRE-LCM researchers, João Sousa (PhD Student), Marta Barbosa (PhD Student), Ana Rita Ribeiro (Post-doctoral Researcher), Adrián Silva (Assistant Professor) and Fernando Pereira (Associate Professor) created the Waterfisher, a fishing water samples.
After applying for a National Patent through UP Inovation (Process number: Provisional Portuguese Patent n. 110349) and participating in the first edition of Business Ignition Programme in which the team awarded the second prize of BIP, the opportunity arises to promote the technology through a video made by the company Revisitar in partnership with UP Inovation.
With this promotional video, João Sousa, the main inventor, said that they can show the technology more clearly to potential investors, having already made contacts especially with international companies.
To remind: Water polution is global problem, and collecting water samples for analysis is not always easy. From LSRE-LCM/FEUP comes a cleaver and cost effective solution to improve water research. Waterfisher consists of a long-range surface water sampler, ideal for collecting samples in rivers, sea or other surface water compartments of difficult access.
