Thus, at this event, topics related to Heritage, Environmental Volunteering and the role of Europe in Science and Innovation will be addressed, thanks to the participation of Cristina Teté Garcia (Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve, Center for Studies in Archeology, Arts and Heritage Sciences), Paula Vaz (Portuguese Environment Agency – ARH Algarve) and Ana Paula Burnay (Europe Direct Algarve Centre).

At the end of the session, there will be “a digital scientific appetizer”.

This meeting is organized as part of the Science and Technology Week 2020 and the European Researchers' Night and is aimed at the general public.

The European Researchers' Night is a public event on a European scale that brings researchers closer to the public. It shows the diversity of science and its impact on citizens' daily lives, stimulating interest in research careers – particularly among young people. In 2019, it attracted 1,6 million visitors in over 400 cities across Europe and beyond.

This year, children, young people and families will once again meet researchers and discover research, science and innovation through practical experiences, scientific shows, games, quizzes, competitions, exhibitions, and digital activities. The event takes place in 29 countries this Friday, November 27th.
