C3P and NASA Technical Workshop

"PARTNERING FOR SHARED SOLUTIONS TO COMMON
ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS
"

 

at Universidade Católica Portuguesa
Lisbon, Portugal


September 8 & 9, 2005

Hosting LEADOUT Project in Collaboration
 


 

On 8 & 9 September 2005, the Centro Para Prevenção da Poluição (C3P) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) hosted a technical workshop at the Universidade Católica in Lisbon, Portugal.  The two-day workshop provided an excellent forum to showcase innovative and emerging pollution prevention technologies, share lessons learned, and identify new joint opportunities.  In total, 133 individuals from 9 countries attended the technical workshop.  More than 30 international scientists, technologists, and engineering experts presented PowerPoint slides on topics ranging from advanced coatings and coating removal technologies to fuel cells to lead-free electronics.  This exchange of solutions provided direct and tangible benefit to attendees from academia, defense, and commercial industries, thereby helping meet the mission not only of C3P but key workshop supporters such as the Luso-American Foundation for Development (FLAD) and the Office of Naval Research Global (ONRG).

 

The workshop began with welcoming comments from General (ret.) Pelagio Castelo Branco, C3P Director General.  Gen. Branco highlighted those partnerships C3P has begun to form with manufacturers, industry associations, universities, and testing and engineering centers of excellence throughout the European Union.  Ms. Olga Dominguez, Deputy Assistant Administrator for Infrastructure, Management, and Headquarters Operations at NASA, discussed how C3P fits into NASA’s desire to benefit from international scientific collaborations.  Prof. Humberto Rosa, Secretary of State for the Environment, highlighted the importance of C3P in providing innovative ideas to better enable Portuguese development and global competition. 

 

At the workshop, the Israeli Users' Association of Advanced Technologies in Electronics (ILTAM) signed a Cooperation Protocol with C3P.  ILTAM is the first Israeli organization to sign a protocol with C3P and represents an opportunity to leverage key resources and knowledge on validating green technologies.

 

C3P is an international organization that facilitates partnerships with the scientific & technical community in Portugal, Europe, and the United States to identify and evaluate less hazardous and sustainable materials for use in acquisition, manufacturing and sustaining maintenance processes.  The C3P is recognized by Ministério do Ambiente de Portugal (Portuguese Ministry of Environment), and NASA per the Joint Statement Between NASA and the Portuguese Ministry of the Environment Regarding Cooperation in the Field of Environmental Pollution Prevention Matters, signed on 18 September 2002. 

 

Support for the workshop was provided by FLAD, ONRG, Instituto de Soldadura e Qualidade (Welding and Quality Institute, or ISQ), Instituto de Engenharia Mecânica e Gestão Industrial (Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Management Institute, or INEGI), Associação Portuguesa das Empresas do Sector Eléctrico e Electrónico (Portuguese Association of Electric and Electronic Industries, or ANIMEE),  Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto (Engineering Faculty of University of Porto, or FEUP), NASA and ITB, Inc.
