Ciências Research Day

Grande Auditório (3.2.14), Ciências ULisboa
Research at the Faculty of Sciences

Join us on 27 October 2021 for the 3rd edition of Ciências Research Day, in which Ciências ULisboa showcases the best Science made in this centenary institution!

The event will take place on Auditorium 3.2.14 (Building C3, 2nd floor), starting at 9.30 am and during the whole day. Participation is free, but prior registration is suggested.

Live streaming


This year’s edition will have a session dedicated to Climate Change - an area in which Ciências ULisboa is leader - as well as contributions on internationally relevant research carried out in Ciências and information on scientific projects and national and international collaborative initiatives - check the programme.

And be prepared for the lunch break: there will be plenty of things to do!

At the C3 atrium will take place the posters session, where you will find 72 posters about cutting edge science developed at Ciências ULisboa.

Who are the (great) experts behind great scientists? What is the daily routine of chemists, mathematicians, biologists, astronomers, neuroscientists and so many other scientific fields? In which projects are they working on? Ask your questions on the speed-dates that will take place on the ground floor of C3, as well as on C6 and C8 buildings.

And don’t miss the open labs, at C8 Building - a new and live experience of Ciências Research Day! Join researchers, technicians and/or graduated students in guided tours to labs supporting research at the Biosystems & Integrative Sciences Institute (BioISI), the Centro de Química Estrutural (CQE) and the Laboratório de Instrumentação e Física Experimental de Partículas (LIP).

Ação de formação para docentes.

Currently, climate changes or alterations are known to be reflected on the stable isotope ratios of Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon, Oxygen and Sulphur present in atmospheric gas forms, fresh or ocean water, as well as in plants and animals and organic matter in the soil.

The objective of this course is to 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.

Science is increasingly more present in our everyday decisions, with a fundamental role in global problems. Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge.

The course 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.

Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth. Nevertheless, although many research groups have long been committed to the study of symbiosis, its definition and functioning are not fully understood, and its ecological role and relevance are still underestimated.

This 5-day course offers to the participants a light microscopy course focusing on fluorescence microscopy techniques applied to the detection of proteins and glycans in tissue samples and cell cultures.

Candidaturas ao prémio (versões preliminares dos artigos) até 28 de fevereiro de 2023.

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.

A 19 de abril de 2023 celebra-se o 112.º aniversário da Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa.

The objective of this course is to provide students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

The objective of this course is to provide students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. 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. This includes the selection of functional traits and calculation of Functional Diversity Indexes.
