Events, articles on business magazines, conferences, journals, publications. These will provide specific details on the scientific quality of the research demonstrating, how it opens new innovative avenues for research and how it represents progress compared to where research on the assessment of brown adipose tissue activity stood before.

An interview of Dr. Andreas Flouris and Dr. Giorgos Sakkas about the ICI-THROUGH project, a research programme funded by the European Union (EU). The interview was recorded on in February 2016 by the University of Thessaly as a dissemination activity demonstrating its research output. Dr. Flouris is the Director of FAME Lab (www.famelab.gr) at the University of Thessaly Department of Exercise Science, and the Coordinator of the ICI-THROUGH project. Dr. Giorgos Sakkas is the Director of LIVE Lab at the same institution.



During a 3-month exchange from the Center for Technology Research and Innovation Ltd. (CETRI) to the University of Thessaly (UTH), Dr. Giannis Spyropoulos and Dr. Athanasios Batagiannis from CETRI travelled to UTH to attend an innovation event entitled:

"Science Innovation Forum" which took

place from 11th to 13th of May, 2016.

During a 3-month exchange from the University of  Porto (UoP) to the Center for Technology Research and Innovation Ltd. (CETRI), Dr. Soraia Neves and Dr. António Ferreira from UoP travelled to CETRI to assist CETRI in the organisation of an innovation event entitled:

"EU Funded innovation in H2020 event",

on 26-27th of June, 2015.


During a 2-month exchange from the Center for Technology Research and Innovation Ltd. (CETRI) to the University of Porto (uOp), Mr. Andreas Tsolodimos and Dr. Giannis Spyropoulos from CETRI travelled to UoP to lead a workshop on Image analysis in Heath, Sport & Exercise Scienceat Engineering Faculty of Porto University, on 29th of September, 2015.

Subject: "ICI-THROUGH" - Intersectoral collaboration for innovation in non invasive techniques to estimate human brown adipose tissue activity

The University of Porto (UoP) created an ICI-THROUGH project video in collaboration with the Imedica Ltd. researchers, Ms. Mihaela Palela and Ms Ioana Oprea, who were seconded from IMED to UoP through a public outreach activity. Together the researchers at UoP were involved in the production of this video for the general public, to inform about the project scope, approaches and expected outcomes.


The ICI-THROUGH project is a Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Programme (RISE) funded by the European Union (EU). The project started on 1/12/2014 and lasts 4 years. The acronym ICI THROUGH is the code name for “Intersectoral collaboration for innovation in non-invasive techniques to estimate human brown adipose tissue activity”.



The FAME Laboratory from the School of Exercise Science - University of Thessaly participated in the MEDinART exhibition of the Athens Science Festival 2017. In the framework of the ICI-THROUGH study, we have been specializing in thermal camera measurements. We realized that the result was very interesting but also very impressive. The exhibion of MEDinART of the Athens Science Festival 2017 was a great chance to share this part of work and knowledge through an interactive art event that visualizes the changes in human body temperature using Thermal imaging Technology. During the festival, there were exhibited a wide range of photos of human body temperature changes during several daily activities.

Within the context of public engagemenent activities WP6 for task 6.3, Ms. Levantinou and Ms. Vasilakopoulou from CETRI collaborated with UTH researchers and created the ICI-THROUGH “Executive summary”.

Within the context of dissemination activities of  WP5, task 5.3, Dr. Tiago Sotto Mayor from UOP  collaborated with CETRI researchers and created an ICI-THROUGH Infographic.
