At the end of the 1st Edition of the Cool Tools for Science event, two prizes were awarded: one for Coolest Innovation (awarded by GTPB) and one for Coolest Presentation (awarded by VWR).
Gabriel Martins (IGC) won Coolest Innovation with his OPenT – Open Source Mesoscopic Optical Tomography Imaging, while Hedi Young and Nuno Loureiro (Champalimaud Foundation) took home the prize for Coolest Presentation.
We asked two of the winners three questions and here are their answers!
Last week (6th May) we discussed with four national companies to figure out how we can better help each other. With the collaboration of HeartGenetics, SilicoLife, Sogrape and SPAROS, and all other companies who participated, we initiated a process of approximation that we hope will translate into productive and mutually beneficial partnerships in the future.
