Romanian energy engineering masterminds get gold, silver at EUREKA international contest

The National Institute of Research and Development for Energy Engineering (INCPE) in Bucharest reaped new international successes at the INNOVA Show of the EUREKA International Contest held in Brussels (Belgium) between November 13 – 15, general manager of the institute Wilhelm Kappel (photo)  told. The three participating INCPE inventions received a gold medal and two silver medals, respectively, which signaled them out of the total of 25 Romanian inventions selected by the Scientific Events Committee of the Advisory Board on Research, Development and Innovation of the Executive Unit for the Funding of Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation. The recipient of the gold medal is a ceramic orthopedic implant for orthopedic surgery that can be used for the partial or total replacement of joints and fracture fixation; the other two distinctions went to energy inventions.  ‘One of the inventions that received the silver medal is a hydro-aggregate for the conversion of the hydraulic energy of flowing water courses, the other is a superconducting magnetic field generator with application in nuclear physics for the construction of charged particle accelerators or detectors of electrically charged particles, or for the study of the nuclear excited states in laboratories,’ said Kappel. Romanian inventors and researchers participated in the 63rd edition of the EUREKA International Contest dedicated to inventions, held over November 13 – 15 in Brussels, as part of the INNOVA Show. Romania was present with 25 inventions exhibited in the stand organised under the aegis of the Ministry of National Education.The INNOVA show in the capital of Belgium has established itself over time as a prestigious meeting space for researchers, scientists, academia and the entrepreneurs that are most active and stay amped on the newest developments in the business environment.The National Institute of Research and Development for Energy Engineering (INCPE) in Bucharest reaped new international successes at the INNOVA Show of the EUREKA International Contest held in Brussels (Belgium) between November 13 – 15, general manager of the institute Wilhelm Kappel told AGERPRES on SaturdayThe three participating INCPE inventions received a gold medal and two silver medals, respectively, which signaled them out of the total of 25 Romanian inventions selected by the Scientific Events Committee of the Advisory Board on Research, Development and Innovation of the Executive Unit for the Funding of Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation.The recipient of the gold medal is a ceramic orthopedic implant for orthopedic surgery that can be used for the partial or total replacement of joints and fracture fixation; the other two distinctions went to energy inventions.’One of the inventions that received the silver medal is a hydro-aggregate for the conversion of the hydraulic energy of flowing water courses, the other is a superconducting magnetic field generator with application in nuclear physics for the construction of charged particle accelerators or detectors of electrically charged particles, or for the study of the nuclear excited states in laboratories,’ said Kappel.Romanian inventors and researchers participated in the 63rd edition of the EUREKA International Contest dedicated to inventions, held over November 13 – 15 in Brussels, as part of the INNOVA Show.
