LSRE-LCM at 2nd Doctoral Congress in Engineering 2017

June 8-9, 2017

The 2nd Doctoral Congress in Engineering (DCE17) was held at FEUP on June 8th and 9th, 2017.

This symposium was an open forum for research done by PhD students, MSc students and other young researchers of the several areas of engineering, with the aim to enable the discussion with peers, professors and industry.

The organization of this event intended to provide knowledge sharing between FEUP and other national and international participants, encouraging them to present their ongoing research and promote networking between the participants.

The PhD students of LSRE-LCM took this as an excelente opportunity to present developments in their research work through oral presentations and posters sessions.

The II Science Fair of Bragança

May 31 – June 2, 2017

The II Science Fair of Bragança (May 31 – June 2, 2017) is organized by the “Centro Ciência Viva de Bragança” and aims at stimulating the interest in science in the local community.

This event had the support of the Municipality of Bragança and involved the following participants: Scholar groups of Abade de Baçal, Emídio Garcia, Miguel Torga and Mogadouro, the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança (IPB), the Zoela Association, the Bragança Professional Training Centre (IEFP) and the Universal Professional Practical School (EPPU).

LSRE-LCM/IPB has participated in the last day. Our thanks to João Pinto, Helder Rafael, Rami Arafah and Adriano Henrique.
