C2TN at Noite Europeia dos Investigadores 2019

The 2019 edition of the initiative “Noite Europeia dos Investigadores” took place at the Museum of Natural History and Science (Lisbon's University) on the last 27th 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 cakes baked with irradiated and non-irradiated eggs 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 with thermoelectric materials focused on recovery of waste energy.  
- 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.
