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).

Conferência do Centro Interuniversitário de História das Ciências e da Tecnologia, por Céline Paillette (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne).

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.

Understanding plant water relations at several scales under climate change is the theme of the XV Portuguese-Spanish Water relations Symposium: “Water relations under climate change: from genes to ecosystem”.

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.
