Together against COVID-19
IPFN is actively contributing to the fight against COVID-19 thanks to the effort of several members.
The Group of Engineering and Systems Integration, in collaboration with the Department of Mechanical Engineering, is contributing with 3D printings for the production of medical face shields to be used in hospitals and other health care units.
Prof. Bernardo Carvalho, as part of the “Air4all” project (Portuguese project that will produce and offer ventilators to hospital units) is collaborating with several universities in software development for ventilators.
Many laboratory consumables are now more required elsewhere. ISTTOK and ESTHER have each donated 15 litres of alcohol, while L2I has donated dozens of latex glove boxes to medical units.
