On the 9th November 2022, CEMMPRE participated in the event INOVAÇÃO@UC with a booth.

INOVAÇÃO@UC is an annual event of the University of Coimbra that puts innovation in the centre of the University’s activity. This event aims to be a showcase of what is done at UC for the business sector and society. CEMMPRE showed its competences and how it can be an innovation partner.

In this event the J. Norberto Pires Innovation Prize was also awarded, a form to pay tribute to this CEMMPRE’s researcher. The prize was attributed to Prof. Jorge Coelho who is also a CEMMPRE researcher with the project “Nerve Guide Conduit for Peripheral Nerve Regeneration”. The NervGen project aims to produce biodegradable devices by 3D printing for peripheral nerve regeneration.
