Recognizing the importance of Science Communication, CNC have been deeply involved in science communication activities in order to foster dialogue between scientists and different groups of society, to provide public accountability, to spread our findings through media and to create scientific culture. Our outreach efforts have the enthusiastic involvement of the CNC researchers and our partnerships are crucial to strategically target different publics.
We believe that our outreach strategy could represent a valuable contribution to the scientific literacy in Portugal to build up a truly scientific citizenship and a more knowledgeable society.

Although communication is an innate human ability, communicating science requires knowledge not only of science, but of information technologies, journalism, and visual communication, which might pose significant challenges for many. Several science communication workshops have been promoted by CNC in order to provide scientists with the tools to make their work public even more effectively (either to peers, students, the media, the general public, funding agencies and others); to promote the public interest and participation in science; to deliver outreach activities to the community. All workshops had the collaboration of scientists, science communicators and journalists.

We will be announcing here every new workshop. Below you can find our last events:
