2021 European Researchers’ Night
How can Science contribute to the knowledge about the causes and effects of climate change and to climate neutrality by 2050?
The European Researchers’ Night is an initiative funded by the European Commission, through Marie Curie Actions, aiming to celebrate Science and reduce the gap between researchers and citizens. The European Researchers’ Night translates into a series of activities happening throughout the year culminating in a night of celebration of Science, taking place in several European cities.
The European Researchers’ Night 2021 (ERN2021) will take place on 24th September across Europe. The consortium’s activities, such as lectures, workshops, among others, under the theme “Climate Science“, will take place from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., in a hybrid format, i.e., with reduced face-to-face activities and a parallel programme fully online.
INESC-ID will participate in the following activities:
- “Understanding the risks is key to preparedness.” | Game, Apps and Challenges
In this game we will help you understand warnings and how to be prepared and respond in case of earthquake and tsunami.
Knowing the risks is essential to being prepared. In this game you will learn to know the alerts and what to do to be prepared and respond in case of earthquake and tsunami. It is intended to make the population aware of natural risks, namely seismic and tsunami risks, in order to increase the resilience of communities. Educating and informing about risk prevention and mitigation is essential for promoting a risk culture.

Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango
Dates: November 18-19, 2021
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
