The Public Outreach Programme developed by CNC offers opportunities to develop partnerships with schools and to extend our scientific resources to the community. The Programme is designed to engage students in their science studies and potential careers related to the life sciences, and to broaden the public’s access to science.

By working closely and cooperatively with the researchers, the Science Communication Office of CNC intends to help disseminating scientific advances to the benefit of society and to the research process itself, liaising between the different areas of the research institute, the media, and the publics.

Our outreach efforts have the enthusiastic involvement of the Center’s research staff, graduate and undergraduate students.
The Team:
Adalberto Fernandes
Sara Amaral
Cláudia Cavadas (Coordinator)

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:
