Kick off – INOVEP project – using natural resources in the pharma industry

Labfit, a research and development company headquartered at UBIMedical , launched the InovEP project yesterday, October 2. This research project is the result of a partnership with the University of Beira Interior (UBI) and the Polytechnic Institute of Castelo Branco (IPCB). Its objective is the laboratory characterization of plant extracts in the perspective of their conversion into pharmaceutical ingredients.
Recognizing the increasing interest of the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry in the natural ingredients, in response to a clear market trend, InovEP will allow the characterization of these endogenous resources, with respect to their safety and applicability, according to methodologies recognized by the Regulatory Entities. These ingredients can thus become value-added products for the international market.
The project, which was evaluated by the National Innovation Agency and financed by the Center 2020 Program, will run until 2021 and aims to contribute to the economic growth of the Central Region.

BIOHEALTH Gear Box approved for UBImedical

The EU has approved an european project called BIOHEALTH Gear Box for UBImedical (the coordinator of the project), a knowledge alliance of approximatelly 1 million Euros for 36 months, that will gather European forces from 13 partners (Portugal, Spain, Italy, and The Netherlands) and will accelerate the learning of competencies to boost efficient innovation and spur entrepreneurial processes in the BIOHEALTH sector.

Main Outputs of the project:

  • Reports, a survey and a contents quality plan for the definition of a VET Programme for Real Estate Managers,
  • 1 Handbook for the design of a European Pilot VET Programme for Real Estate Managers,
  • 3 internships Agreements,
  • A database of RENewAL VET contents and materials and the assessed learners’ profiles,
  • Agreements for the promotion, assessment, recognition, and validation of the RENewAL learning outcomes,
  • 4 Learning Modules (720 hours including 30 individual Internship experiences),
  • 30 assessment reports of the learning outcomes drafted by tutors and a problem analysis and solving strategy report related to the European Pilot VET Programme.

European project in the radon area approved for LABEXPORAD – UBIMEDICAL

The european project was approved last June 27 by the ERASMUS PLUS program, a strategic partnership in the area of ​​Higher Education called “Train the trainees – Train future trainers in radiation protection and nuclear technology” that will be coordinated in UBi by LABEXPORAD from UBImedical.

Current and future market needs in the nuclear industry are enormous for qualified nuclear engineers, technologists, radiation protection professionals and radiation protection specialists. For example, by 2020, more than 100 nuclear reactors will be in a standstill in Europe and the number is predicted to increase by 8% a year. Many professionals need to be retrained in the work context. In addition, in other sectors, a transition towards the adoption of the Sustainability Development Goals (ODS) was initiated, a series of objectives agreed upon by the United Nations General Assembly on 25 September 2015.

The main objective of the project is to develop “international advanced training in nuclear technology and radiation protection” through the design of interactive distance learning modules and face-to-face / laboratory modules. Our current and future nuclear engineering students will begin their careers in this transitional world and will play an important role as radiation protection specialists, future trainers and teachers, supervisors and / or radiation protection consultants across all industries. Thus, this initiative emerges as a strategic platform to provide the necessary learning and updating through the design and implementation of a training program in the nuclear area that is attractive and appropriate to the objectives of development of sustainability (ODS), oriented to the transition to a world’s best until 2030.

The project has partners such as Haute Ecole Bruxelles-Brabant (Belgium), Universiteit Hasselt (Belgium), UBI (Portugal), Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (Spain), Universita di Bologna (Italy), Hochschule Mannheim University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Czech Technical University in Prague (Czech Republic) and Greek Atomic Energy Commission (Greece). At UBI, the project is sponsored by LABEXPORAD, under the coordination of Prof. Sandra Soares.
