In 2019, the IGC and the Institute of Chemical and Biological Technology (ITQB NOVA) established a partnership with Oeiras Municipality, under the latter’s strategy “Science and Technology – 2020 to 2025”. Within the scope of this program, a strategy was put forward for the areas of science, education and society that aims to contribute to the construction of a more participatory and knowledgeable society, that identifies itself with the use of scientific processes as a tool for critical and creative thinking. Under this strategy, the focus is also on the investigation of new science communication tools that afford a measurable and lasting impact on society.
In order to channel efforts towards the great civilizational questions of our day, this unit seeks to respond to different scientific-societal challenges, such as how to better convey truth and mitigate fake news, or how to communicate the importance of basic science.
