INOVA+ celebrated its 25th anniversary with the launch of a national competition to award innovative projects in a scientific and business context, with the potential of an international scale, and to distinguish, through the CAREER AWARD – SCIENTIFIC EXCELLENCE, those who have remarkably careers and who, in doing so, has contributed to asserting excellence in teaching and research.

In this edition, PROFESSOR FERNANDO LOBO PEREIRA was awarded, posthumously, the personality of the year award, distinguishing and recognizing the excellence of his scientific career and the contribution that, by example, he made to society.

The communication of the results took place in a public session, on the 26th of September 2022, in the FEUP Auditorium.
