Plastics Heritage: History, Limits and Possibilities

Museu Nacional dos Coches, Lisboa
Plastics Heritage Congress 2019

O plástico transformou as nossas vidas como poucas outras invenções, desde a sua criação, há pouco mais de 100 anos. Se déssemos um nome à nossa época, com base no tipo de materiais que configuram o mundo em que vivemos, seria a Era do Plástico.

Assim, o Congresso Plastics Heritage - History, Limits and Possibilities, tem como objetivo abordar a história e a herança do plástico e alcançar uma compreensão mais profunda sobre os materiais poliméricos históricos (HIPOMS) nas suas várias representações e funções na sociedade.

Este Congresso Internacional decorre do projeto de investigação, financiado pela FCT, “O Triunfo da Baquelite - Contributos para a História do Plástico em Portugal”, coordenado por Maria Elvira Callapez. É organizado pelo Centro Interuniversitário de História das Ciências e da Tecnologia (CIUHCT), ao qual se associa a Plastics Heritage European Association (PHEA).

O programa completo pode ser consultado aqui.

Salienta-se a participação, como keynote Speaker / Orador convidado, do historiador de arte norte-americano Jeffrey Meikle. O seu livro "American Plastic: A Cultural History” é uma referência importantíssima neste campo de estudos. Estará também presente o historiador Robert Friedel que se tem dedicado ao estudo dos "plásticos pioneiros" e Hugh Karraker, produtor, actor e bisneto de Leo Hendrik Baekeland, o químico industrial pioneiro da indústria de plásticos.

Realce também para realização de uma mesa redonda que envolverá académicos, empresários e outras personalidades (Hugh Karraker, Jeffrey Meikle, Robert Friedel, Susan Mossman, Tom Fisher, Penny Sparke, Jaime Rezola Clemente, Miguel Ritto, Paulo Almeida, Nuno Guimarães, Pedro Gonçalves).

Realizar-se-á uma visita guiada à exposição Plasticidade - Uma História dos Plásticos em Portugal, patente no Museu de Leiria, e desenvolvida em parceria com o projeto. A exposição está patente no Museu de Leiria de abril de 2019 a dezembro de 2020, e pode ser visitada todos os dias, entre as 09h30 e as 17h30.

This meeting is a forum for scientists of all academic levels, (from master to principal investigators), to present their work and discuss, fostering new ideas and collaborations. We invite researchers from all over the world to participate and submit their work.

Desde o início de 2020 que somos bombardeados, através da comunicação social, com informações sobre o novo coronavírus humano - SARS-CoV-2 - que provoca a síndrome respiratória aguda grave. Nunca se comunicou tanto, em tempo real, um tema científico, mas será que já vimos todas as nossas perguntas sobre este tema respondidas?

At the end of this course, participants will be able to predict the three-dimensional structure of nucleic acid and proteins from their sequence and use the acquired knowledge to improve or create new methodologies in molecular biology research and diagnostics.

The course SoilEco aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

In this course, we promote a multidisciplinary approach presenting the most recent findings on the topic and challenging the traditional way of considering symbiotic associations as exceptions and not as the rule.

The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

O evento pretende juntar técnicos, investigadores, estudantes, produtores, industriais e demais agentes da fileira, contribuindo para a atualização de dados sobre o setor e a partilha de conhecimentos sobre as potencialidades da flora portuguesa, para além, das condições edafoclimáticas nacionais que potenciam produtos de elevada qualidade.

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.

Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge – and that can be achieved for example by a conscious use of the communication tools at their disposal and a better articulation with journalists, among other means.

This course aims at providing students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

This course aims at providing students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. It also includes an introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

The course provides essential skills and knowledge that enable the participants to develop climate change adaptation strategies.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with basic knowledge on a) the fundamental aspects of experimental design and b) workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software. These will include all steps of a research project, from the optimal sampling of communities to process inference from large-scale patterns of taxon, phylogenetic and functional diversity.

This course aims to walk through the grounds of modern botany studies, covering subjects that have been excluded from most academic curricula.

The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems. Basic knowledge will be provided through theoretical and practical lessons on how to select and use the most suitable metrics based on the analysis of multiple compartments of the ecosystems.

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. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.
