Instituto Pedro Nunes (IPN) is a private non-profit organization that promotes innovation and the transfer of technology, establishing the connection between the scientific world and the business environment.
To leverage a strong university – enterprise relationship for the promotion of innovation, rigor, quality and entrepreneurship in private and public sector organisations, IPN acts in three complementary areas: (1) Research and technological development, consultancy and specialised services; (2) Incubation and acceleration of businesses and ideas;(3) Highly specialised training and promotion of science and technology.
IPN’s technological infrastructures includes a set of six RTD laboratories in diversified technological areas. For the scope of this call we present two of them:
IPNlas provides applied research services and technological development to companies. IPNlas provides expertise on (Cybersecurity for) Embedded AI; Collaborative Robotics; Health Technology Assessment, Certification, Implementation, Validation and Co-creation; Technology applied to health and agrifood sectors.
IPNfitolab works on the detection of and research into plant pests and diseases, improving plant health in agriculture and forestry.
IPN is thus able to provide multidisciplinary support for product creation and innovative processes within an entrepreneurial environment. This includes research and technological development, access to sources of funding and assistance with intellectual property queries and entry to international markets.
