The project SAFe – Forest Alert System
The project SAFe was recently selected for funding by the “Fundação La Caixa” under the Promove programme, has been covered by the national newspaper Público. Accessible and flexible detection and communications technology will be developed to be used in forest observation and detection of fires in the Nogeira mountain range. This technology is expected to be later made availale to other areas in the country and abroad. SAFe is lead by CeDRI, the Research Centre in Digitalization and Intelligent Robotics, at IPB, and has the participation of CIMO and INESC Tec
Kick-off meeting of the On-Surf project
The kick-off meeting of the On-Surf Mobilizador project, funded by Portugal 2020, was held last October 31st in the CENIMAT (FCT-UNL) facilities, Monte da Caparica.
This project aims to mobilize the different national actors of the value chain in the industrialization of solutions in the area of Surface Engineering in response to the great challenges of this technological sector directed to the automotive, tooling, pharmaceutical, food and decorative markets, among others. The project consortium is coordinated by TEandM and includes the participation of CeDRI / IPB, among other 19 partners. The project will have a duration of 36 months.
The Digital Innovation Hub for Agriculture, HUB4AGRI, was launched officially last 15th October in Lisbon in the facilities of Confagri. HUB4AGRI (http://hub4agri.com/) is coordinated by ISQ and comprises 15 members, being Instituto Politécnico de Bragança one of its members, represented by its two research centres, CeDRI – Research Centre in Digitalization and Intelligent Robotics and CIMO - Mountain Research Center. HUB4AGRI provides a large combination of services aiming the digital transformation of the agro value chain. In particular, the HUB4AGRI initiative aims to create a multi-sector cooperation network that promotes the connection between technology providers and the needs of the agricultural sector supporting innovation connected with digital decision support tools and R&D activities, serving as a one-stop shop for the provision through a European cooperation network.
