C2TN at Noite Europeia dos Investigadores 2018

The 2018 edition of the initiative “Noite Europeia dos Investigadores” took place at the Museum of Natural History and Science and at Lisbon's Botanical Garden (Lisbon's University) on the last 28th of September. In that context, several activities were developed and promoted by the outreach group of C2TN, under the context of “C2TN's contribution to the cities of tomorrow":
- A blind tasting of delicious strawberries which proved not only that food irradiation is perfectly safe, but also that it does not cause any alterations in food besides increasing their shelf life and safety.
- A practical demonstration entitled "The air belongs to everyone" performed in the framework of the LifeIndex Air project, and which involved the measurement of air quality on site (project information)
- A demonstration related with the ClimACT project that is focused on driving a transition towards a low carbon economy in school (project information
- A very successful "Science Dating powered by C2TN" session which consisted in 5 minutes talks with scientists, following the speed dating concept, where several topics were discussed. During around 1h30, this activity has engaged close to 100 participants.
