European Researchers' Night

Back to list

The European Researchers' Night is a Europe-wide public event, which displays the diversity of science and its impact on citizens' daily lives in fun, inspiring ways. Last Friday, 24th of September, the event took place in 29 countries including Portugal.

As expected, LAQV was very well represented, this year by our GRAQ researchers!

The event happened in Castelo da Foz, and the dissemination of some of the work that is being developed within the scope of projects such as SilverBrain, BioFirEx, 4FirHealth and Honey+, financed by FCT was a success.

The Special Force of Portuguese Civil Protection associated with our researchers, to demonstrate the state-of-the-art technologies in Portugal such as the most sophisticated drone in the world that is used in fire prevention and monitorization.

A mini-laboratory allowed to demonstrate how some chemical analyses are made to honey as well as blind-taste proofs of several products that delighted the several attendants.
