Main Research Results
Since it was founded 20 years ago, the group has registered (produced) 546 products, with an index of 27 products per year. If the contribution of each year to this number is analyzed, the year 2014 is highlighted with a 13% (73 products) followed by the year 2018 (10% - 54 products.) It is remarkable that, in 2020, the production accounts for only 4%, with zero products in many items. If, on the other hand, the contribution of the different types of products to the final result is analyzed, published articles have the highest proportion with 22%, followed by participation in events (19%) and undergraduate works (16%).
