European Researchers' Night 2023

CITAB was represented with various activities in Coimbra, Évora, and Armamar

The European Researchers' Night 2023 was an outstanding success, and this year, CITAB researchers made an incredible impact at three different locations - Coimbra, Évora, and Armamar. This annual event celebrating science and research drew a diverse and enthusiastic audience, with a significant presence of curious children eager to explore the world of scientific discovery.

In Coimbra, CITAB researchers José Moutinho Pereira, Lia-Tânia Dinis, Sandra Pereira, Ana Monteiro and Cátia Brito presented a wide array of interactive experiments and demonstrations in an activity called "To catch plants in broad daylight, in the act of 'capturing' carbon from the air...". The young and inquisitive minds in attendance had the opportunity to engage with our experts, learn about cutting-edge research, and witness firsthand the commitment to creating a more sustainable future.
