Launching the LSRE-LCM Website

March 17, 2017

The new, long overdue, website of the Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM is now open.

On this date, LSRE-LCM counts with a total of 134 researchers; 72 with a PhD and 21 PhD students; 53% of our researchers are women. To all who have worked on and helped with the contents of this site, thank you.

We welcome all our visitors, and invite you to spend some time discovering who we are and what we do, a little bit of our history, our current team and our outputs. In particular, visit our Research menu, where we tried to summarize most of our R&D activities.

As is the case with research, a website should be a dynamic project. Soon the Alumni page will be launched, for which we invite our former researchers to send a short biographical note and a current photo. Other information will be provided in the future, so please come back and visit again soon.

Adrián Silva wins Vicente de Seabra Medal 2016

March 1, 2017

On February 20th, the Jury of the 2016 Vicente de Seabra Medal gathered at Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ) decided by unanimous vote to award Adrián Silva, Associate Researcher at the LSRE-LCM and Investigador Principal at FEUP.

This medal has the purpose to reward the quality, originality and importance of research works in Chemistry developed in Portugal by a researcher not older than 40 years. The Jury considered the quality, impact and quantity of scientific work performed, especially in the last five years.

At LSRE-LCM Adrián Silva expertise is focused on the preparation, characterization and application of nano- and macro-structured materials for separation and reaction engineering.
