On November 27th, researchers and science communicators across Europe participate in an event that brings together science and society. It is the European Researchers’ Night!
This year, Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência celebrates science in an online format, launching a virtual challenge to participants with clues, mystery and a lot of science. It is just that something mysterious is happening at IGC … Someone left an enigmatic letter to director Mónica Bettencourt Dias with the signature “Scientist X” and spread clues throughout the institute. Who is this Scientist? And why is s/he doing this? Venture out on this virtual tour, alone or with your family, to find out more about the day-to-day life of scientists, or about the initiatives we have developed to address COVID-19.
The virtual tour is interactive, and uses 360-degree technology, allowing the visitor to explore the surroundings. If you use a mobile device, you only need to move the device sideways to picture the surroundings. If you have a computer, use the mouse to move the image. The tour will be available mainly in Portuguese.
