Across three days, 11-13 May, INESC-ID was present at SciComPT 2022, the Portuguese science communication congress, held this year in São Miguel island, in the Azores.

The yearly SciComPT meetings are a great chance for science communication professionals to share best practices and projects across the public understanding of science board. At this year’s meeting, Pedro Ferreira, INESC-ID’s Communications and Outreach Coordinator, gave a short talk on some of the public engagement with technology ideas being brewed at INESC-ID, including — and not limited to — artificial intelligence, machine learning and computational biology, highlighting the dynamic nature of technological development as it responds to societal needs.

Engaging diverse publics with the research developed at INESC-ID across its eleven research areas is tantamount and an integral part of the institute’s mission: “to produce added value to people and society, supporting the response of public policies to scientific, health, environmental, cultural, social, economic and political challenges, in the fields of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering”.
