Researchers at UCIBIO are aware that their research have a broad impact on society and are open to interact with the public. UCIBIO’s scientists are committed to communicate and clarify the scientific process and results.
Aiming to engage public with research work developed at UCIBIO, researchers are involved in various outreach actions, including open days, school visits, workshops, public talks and events for local entities (schools, hospitals, science fairs, etc). Through these activities, researchers ensure that their research work is understood by non-specialists and contribute to a better understanding of science by the general public. UCIBIO also participates in national science outreach activities by collaborating with the national agency for scientific culture, Ciência Viva.
