FEUP Day Highlights LSRE-LCM Researchers and Professors

On 19th January, the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) celebrated another edition of FEUP Day, an annual event that highlights and values the members of the academic community from the previous year. This event is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate achievements in both the pedagogical and scientific fields.

Among the highlights this year were the researchers and professors from the Laboratory of Separation and Reaction Processes - Laboratory of Catalysis and Materials (LSRE-LCM), who were honoured with awards for pedagogical recognition and scientific recognition.

The list of LSRE-LCM researchers and lecturers who received these awards can be found below:


- Alexandre Filipe Porfírio Ferreira

- Manuel Fernando Ribeiro Pereira
