Noite Europeia dos Investigadores

 

Launched in 2005, the European Researchers' Night (NEI) is a biennial initiative that aims to celebrate science and bring together researchers and citizens.

 

The Instituto de Saúde Pública da Universidade do Porto(ISPUP) has participated in this initiative, promoting several projects and areas of research that it invigorates.

 

The NEI seeks to break down the barriers separating science from citizens and demystifying the distant image people have of the researcher and/or scientist. This is an opportunity to disseminate the work carried out by Portuguese scientific institutions and to affirm the importance of efficient communication between research centers and civil society.
