Activity

GTI’s activity is integrated in LNEC’s Strategy for Research and Innovation (E2I). It is anchored in many multi-partner research projects, including universities and companies, funded by a broad scope of national and international funding agencies.


In the past 5 years, GTI has been funded by the following international programs:


In Portugal, GTI led and participated in several research and innovation projects :

One of the most emblematic outcomes of these projects is the Water Information Forecast Framework (WIFF), a multi-purpose platform for coastal and urban real-time forecast and monitoring, linking high-performance models and wireless sensor networks. Detailed information and selected products of WIFF are freely available at http://ariel.lnec.pt

GTI also develops consultancy studies for Portugal in Portugal and abroad.
Over the period 2014-202, GTI’s activity will be focused on the following themes:

Real time forecast and monitoring systems for environmental phenomena
Smart systems for risk and emergency management, including early-warning systems
Parallel and high performance computing in clusters, cloud and supercomputers 
Smart systems for water resources management support
