Ambassador of the Republic of Austria to the Republic of Moldova, Gerhard Reiweger, presented the Energy Globe Award 2016 for the Republic of Moldova.

The award was presented to researcher Mihail Poleacov for achieving outstanding innovations in energy and environmental protection. The paper was submitted to the competition by the Union of Inventors and Rationalizers “Innovator” (UIR) of the Republic of Moldova.

The invention relates to an earthquake detector for the population developed by the Children’s Club under protection of UIR “Innovator”. This detector is designed in a simplistic way, is produced from household waste and detects earthquakes.
