A seminar organized by ITeCons and Centro Habitat was held last week in Coimbra. Maria José Machado, from CeNTI, talked about the application of Nanotechnology in and for Energy Efficient Builings, and presented the final results of the project Nano@Contrução.

European Commission has selected DEPHOTEX among 450 projects and was one of the 50 projects on display in the exhibition INNOVATION CONVENTION 2011 (5-6 December 2011).
Last 12th December, RTP (the national Portuguese television) presented a TV report about the developments made in collaboration between CeNTI and Têxteis Penedo S.A. This report focus the cushion TPLEDs, a decorative lighting cushion with energy harvesting, based in self-sustainability (it generates energy to light up the LEDs).
Nano@Construction – Applied nanotechnology to energy efficiency and sustainable construction
This project, led by CeNTI, in partnership with Centro Habitat, is about to end this year. Compete (managing authority for POFC) has recently released news about the project on their website, briefing the aims of the project, giving several good examples of achieved indicators and about the application of nanotechnology in materials for sustainable construction.
