From the end of the month of September to the middle of the month of October, our researchers have been very active in participating in outreach activities. These events represent a great opportunity to showcase our activities to different members of society and showcase some of the great things we are developing at ISR-Lisboa.

European Researchers Night’22
The European Researchers Night – NEI 2022, took place on September 30th, from 5 pm to midnight. Known as one of the biggest outreach events in Europe, the face-to-face program in Lisbon happened at Museu de História Natural e de Ciência. Our stand at Jardim do Príncipe Real was a success, showcasing different research projects.

International Science Festival – FIC.A
FIC.A, the international science festival, took place between October 10th and 16th, at Hub-ACT, a hub for art, science and technology and an incubation centre, in Porto Salvo (Oeiras). This event is organized in partnership with the Oeiras City Hal and ISR-Lisboa and was represented by volunteer researchers, at the Instituto Superior Técnico space, on the days open to all public. Thank you to all who represented ISR activities on Saturday and Sunday.

Both of these events represent interaction with hundreds of people from different backgrounds, from small children and families to elderly people and researchers of different fields.
