Planeta Digital: novas oportunidades, empregos e negócios associados à observação da Terra para a ação climática

Evento online
Logótipo do Encontro Ciência 2020, sobre um fundo branco

Warm up de antevisão do Encontro Ciência 2020, com a participação de Vanda Brotas (Ciências ULisboa).

Observar a Terra a partir do espaço pode ajudar-nos a desenvolver o país? Há futuro para o setor espacial português? Que empregos e negócios poderão ser criados? Poderão trazer benefícios para todo o território ou tudo se resumirá a mais crescimento nos grandes pólos urbanos? E face à mudança climática, qual a importância de termos dados fidedignos para avaliar riscos e melhor nos defendermos de catástrofes naturais?

A sessão será transmitida exclusivamente via YouTube. Poderá assistir sem registo prévio.


Objectives: Citizen science can be part of the larger process of engaging people in new forms of interaction in scientific research, challenging scientists and citizens whilst enlarging scientific knowledge and providing learning opportunities for all part

Objectives: This course aims at: 1) exploring how scientists can use social media as tools to enhance the communication of their research and the dialogue with society, and 2) discussing the differences that exist in the work of scientists and journalists

Objectives: This course will teach how to apply the SWAT eco-hydrological model to assess the impacts of climate and associated changes on water-soil-plant interactions, and consequences to water resources, soil erosion and nutrient cycles.

Objectives: Provide students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

Objectives: Provide students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. Introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Objectives: This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software.

Objectives: This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology.

Objectives: This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets.

Objectives: The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems.

Objectives: Acquire knowledge regarding bioinformatic tools available to predict nucleic acid (RNA, DNA or Nucleic Acids Mimics) and protein three-dimensional structure, as well as autonomy and critical thinking in the use of those tools.

New date: 30 August - 03 September 2021.

This conference is the 22nd in the series of triennial conferences which bring together the Particle and Nuclear Physics communities.
