Nuno Canha, researcher of C2TN, was interviewed for Indoor Air Quality Radio, an online and american based radio, regarding his last published scientific article that focused the subject of indoor air quality during sleep.
Published scientific article: N. Canha, S. Candeias, C. Alves, S.M. Almeida (2017) Indoor air quality during sleep: characterisation and variability under different ventilation patterns. Atmospheric Pollution Research (in press). https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apr.2017.05.004

The PhD Work of Catarina Galinha was subject of a television play in the program "Retratos de Saúde".
“Selenium is an essential micronutrient for human health, but its deficiency may affect at least one billion people worldwide. Plants and plant-derived products transfer the soil-uptaken Se to humans through the food chain, which is hardly enough when soils have been always poor or already exhausted in bioavailable Se species. Other than agronomic methods for enhancing Se levels in cereals, such as soil and foliar supplements, seed enrichment may be viewed as an alternative Se-biofortification technique.”
Pedro Vaz, Researcher of C2TN, was recently appointed as the new National Liaison Officer (NLO) with the International Atomic Energy Agency. We believe that he will carry out this mission with commitment and contribute to the prestige of Portugal with the IAEA (FCT).
He became also a member of the Editorial Board of the "European Journal of Radiology" (ELSEVIER), since April 2017.
The IAEA has published online at Neutron/IBA Case Studies a set of 20 case studies about the use of neutrons and accelerators to solve problems of societal relevance. Three of these studies were based on the work of C2TN researchers. 1) Rescuing ancient glazed tiles using neutron tomography (Isabel Prudêncio et al.); 2) The air that we breathe (Marta Almeida et al.); 3) Alloying Kinetics in Contact Metallization for CMOS (Nuno Barradas et al.) These report recognize and reward the merit of C2TN Researchers Nuno Barradas, Marta Almeida and Isabel Prudêncio.
Official Cover of the Book "Food_Irradiation Technologies", currently in print, with the seal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, which prestige us. One of the authors is Sandra Cabo Verde, researcher of C2TN, and the theme of the book focuses on ionizing radiation technologies, one of the areas of unique competence in the national scientific system, installed in this Campus. Congratulations to Sandra!
Two articles from Catarina Galinha were published on portuguese monthly health magazines. "O Poder do Selénio", on PREVENIR, Nº 137 and "Solo Mais São", on SABER VIVER, Nº 201 (both articles only available in portuguese).

João Carlos Bentes Waerenborgh, researcher of C2TN of Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, was elected member representative of Portugal in the International Board on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect (IBAME), by the active Mössbauer spectroscopists in Portugal. As defined in its constitution the objectives of IBAME are to advance the diffusion of knowledge in the field of the Mössbauer Effect and its applications, to promote the activities of the international community in this interdisciplinary field of basic and applied research, to attempt the harmonization of venues and dates of the various international and continental Mössbauer conferences in order to avoid duplications, and to encourage the participation of young research workers and research workers of weak resource countries. Furthermore IBAME elaborates recommendations for the nomenclature to be used in publications on results achieved by using Mössbauer spectroscopy.
