NOVA, Sustainability and the SDGs – join the NOVA Science Day to know more!

The NOVA Science Day is the annual full day event dedicated to bringing together the scientific community of NOVA University Lisbon and promoting the research produced at the university. 

NOVA Science Day is back for its third edition on September 22 and will be dedicated to Sustainability and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

This year, due to the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be broadcast in live streaming on NOVA’s Youtube channel for the entire academic and scientific community of the University.  

All YERUN members are welcome to join and follow the online event which is divided into two sessions: 

The morning session will be dedicated to presentations by leading figures in the field of research and innovation, including the Portuguese Minister for Science, Technology and Higher Education, Professor Manuel Heitor; the Director of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and former European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas; the ERC representative in the area of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Dr. Martin Penny; and also the President of the National Innovation Agency (ANI), Professor Eduardo Maldonado, sharing information about the new European ecological pact – Green Deal. 

During the afternoon there will be presentations by nine NOVA researchers who develop research related to Sustainability. Other presentations will share the positioning of NOVA in the international rankings and highlight the various initiatives and research developed by NOVA to fight the pandemic. 

NOVA gladly welcomes researchers from YERUN interested in joining the event. Click here for more information on NOVA Science Day 2020 schedule and programme.
