CIES-IUL and OPAC challenge citizens - "On the Wheel of Cultural Heritage"
European Researchers' Night 2019
The European Researchers' Night returned to MUHNAC, in Lisbon, on September 27th, with the motto "Science in the City".
This initiative, which takes place simultaneously in several European cities, seeks to bring science closer to citizens and demystify the image of the scientist. It is an opportunity to disseminate the quality and innovation of research developed in Portugal, as well as to highlight the importance of efficient communication between scientists and scientific institutions and civil society.
CIES-IUL was once again present in this edition through one of its structures: the Portuguese Observatory of Cultural Activities (OPAC). With the activity "On the Wheel of Cultural Heritage", our researchers received dozens of visitors who, through interactive games, were challenged to test their knowledge about Cultural Heritage and the importance of its safeguarding and enhancement.
