electrochemistry research
João Tedim won the Young Researcher in Electrochemistry Award, 2013, awarded by the Portuguese Electrochemical Society.

The prize was delivered on  June 30th, 2014, at the 19th Meeting of the Portuguese Electrochemical Society, held at UA and is a recognition by the relevance of his scientific publications in journals of recognized quality and the impact measured by citations made ​​by the international scientific community.
João Tedim, 32 years old, is a  CICECO DeMac researcher, with over 30 publications in international journals, several book chapters and patents in the area of ​​functional coatings against corrosion. With a degree in Chemistry from the University of Porto, obtained the degree of Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Leicester (UK) in 2009, having joined the UA since then to work with Mario GS Ferreira, professor of DeMac, and Mikhail Zheludkevich, both researchers also from CICECO.
Nuclear magnetic resonance research
Gonçalo Graça awarded with the Prize António Xavier
Gonçalo Graça was one of two winners of the António Xavier Award, awarded to the best PhD thesis in NMR. The award-winning doctoral thesis proposes some metabolic changes detected in amniotic fluid as potential biomarkers of preterm birth occurrence, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes.
With the thesis "Metabonomics of human amniotic fluid for prenatal diagnostics", Gonçalo Graça won the António Xavier Award, ex-aequo with Inês Nunes de Sousa. The thesis took place under the supervision of Ana Gil and co-supervision of Brian Goodfellow, Department of Chemistry Teachers and CICECO Researchers.

Mara Freire won the prize from European Research Council in the category of Starting Grant 

The researcher Mara Freire, has just won one of the grants awarded by the European Research Council, the greatest at European level. The scientist at the Center for Research in Ceramics and Composites (CICECO) will receive about 1.4 million over the next five years to develop the project "IgYPurTech: A sustainable technology for the purification of antibodies." The scientist working in Aveiro intends to develop from antibodies extracted from egg yolk, cheaper biopharmaceutical products that are more effective than some of the existing antibiotics.

Portuguese Society of Electrochemistry distinguishes Aleksey Yaremchenko

The Portuguese Society of Electrochemistry (SPE) attributed to Aleksey Yaremchenko the Young Investigator in Electrochemistry of 2012 Award. The distinction given to the researcher of the Centre for Research in Ceramics and Composites (CICECO), University of Aveiro (UA), for the contribution of his work in the development of the Electrochemistry field, will be delivered during the XVIII Meeting of SPE, which will be held in March 2013 in Porto. The award, established in 2010, aims to stimulate activity in the country of scientific research in the area of Electrochemistry.

research on nanotechnology

Nanotechnology award from the Luso-American Foundation for the Development (FLAD) awarded to Ph.D. student of CICECO

The Ph.D. student Nathalie Barroca from CICECO, was awarded one of the two FLAD Nanotechnology 2010 prizes. These are merit awards for students or researchers from Portuguese institutions of higher education and research that are developing work in the area of Nanotechnology, in collaboration with research institutions in North America. As part of her doctoral work, the research being conducted by Nathalie Barroca has been focused, among other aspects, in the understanding at the nanoscale of protein adsorption on biomaterials with piezoelectric behaviour. The holders of the premiums, in the cash value of $5,000.00 (five thousand U.S. dollars) each, should undertake an internship for a minimum period of three months in the Laboratory in the U.S. with which it has previously been established a collaborative project.
