Instituto Pedro Nunes - Laboratory for Automation and Systems
IPN     IPN Incubadora

LAS (Laboratory for Automation and Systems) undertakes RTD and technology transfer activities in the fields of electronics, automation, robotics and instrumentation.

What we do

We promote ideas, thoughts, and open research processes in order to improve product development, provide better services to our customers and increase efficiency. Our work process involves the creation of new technologies, promotion and, finally, the sale of technology designed for small and medium enterprises or the creation of spin-offs.

Our activities are the result of collaboration between researchers from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (DEEC) at the University of Coimbra and the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR).

The major part of our activity is related to technological innovation for the benefit of society.
