Science Dissemination

CEFITEC was actively involved in several outreach activities for pre-university students. These activities included:

  • Summer schools, such as Academia Quantum, an initiative of the Physics Department of FCT NOVA to provide young people with contact with the scientific research carried out in this department.
  • Science and Technology Week, which aims to promote public awareness of the research carried out in Portugal and its contributions to the advancement of knowledge and the well-being of society.
  • International Science Festival, which offers pedagogical and scientific experiences for all ages.
  • Annual open days, such as EXPO FCT, an event organized by FCT NOVA that constitutes a showcase of activities in the areas of science and engineering, providing opportunities to help pre-university students to make their choices.


CEFITEC researchers also participated in NOVA Sustainability Week to debate their ideas and work developed around the Sustainable Development Goals among the NOVA Community.
