INESC-ID researchers honoured with Universidade de Lisboa / Caixa Geral de Depósitos Scientific Awards
Three INESC-ID researchers have been honoured at this year’s Universidade de Lisboa / Caixa Geral de Depósitos Scientific Awards (Prémios Científicos Universidade de Lisboa / Caixa Geral de Depósitos).
The awardees lists recognised Professor Leonel Augusto Pires Seabra de Sousa (Full Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at IST), who received this year’s award in the Electrical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering (Avionics) category, Professor Rui Manuel Gameiro de Castro (Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at IST), who received this year’s award in the Energy and Environmental Engineering category, as well as Professor Pedro Tiago Gonçalves Monteiro (Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering), who received an honourable mention in the Computer Science and Computer Engineering area.
The UL/CGD Scientific Awards and Honourable Mentions are bestowed across twenty-six areas, recognising scientific research activity while encouraging the practice of publication in international journals of recognized quality.
On having been recognised with the Electrical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering (Avionics) award, Professor Sousa accepted it as “a recognition of the quality of the research work carried out, which is always good. But, fundamentally, I hope that it will be an incentive for the Electrical and Computer Engineering researchers of the younger generations to do even better, namely those who are at INESC-ID.” Professor Castro added that “receiving this award [in Energy and Environmental Engineering] means recognition of the work of my research team in Renewable Energies and Energy Transition, always with the aim of promoting the name of INESC-ID within the international scientific community.”
The award ceremony will take place on 28 June 2022, 6:30pm, at Salão Nobre of Reitoria da Universidade de Lisboa.
