The European Researchers Night returns on September 29, from 6 pm until midnight, and once again Universidade NOVA de Lisboa will participate in it.
In Lisbon there will be more than 100 activities, among workshops, science experiments and demonstrations, hand-on activities, puzzles, exhibitions and debates. NOVA will participate in several activities from two initiatives, promoted by different consortiums.
The first initiative has the participation of Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, which integrates the consortium and organizes several activities, and also with Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas and NOVA Medical School | Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, which organize some of the scheduled actions.
