2nd Annual Meeting of the Interface with Science Platform
The second annual encounter of the Plataforma de Interface com a Ciência will take place on the 2nd of March, at Teatro Thalia in Lisbon, under the "Interface with Science: adding value to knowledge" umbrella.
The event is aimed at managers, communications officers and other professionals with a role in areas interfacing with science in Portugal, and is supported by Secretaria de Estado da Ciência, Tecnologia e Ensino Superior and FCT. Registration for the event will be open until 16 February.
The Platform was created with the objective of creating and promoting a space for sharing among the different actors in the portuguese research and innovation landscape.
This year's meeting will bring new insights on interface areas and their contribution to the development of the national research and innovation system. The program includes a talk by Johan Bollen, of Indiana University, on alternative proposals to the current system of research funding, followed by a debate with the participation of representatives of different entities within the national R&I system. During the event there will also be chance to discover the work of the Platform, to participate and to design the future of this national informal network, and to contribute to a structured reflection on the professionalization of the areas of interface with science.
