IN+ Get Together 2019 23-09-2019

On September 20th, took place the IN+ Get Together, an IN+ community-focused event to foster greater peer relationships and promote knowledge sharing, gathering over 60 colleagues and co-workers.

The morning was filled with presentations from António Luís Moreira, President of IN+, and José Santos-Victor, Director of LARSyS, as well as a pitching session presented by students and researchers about their current researches. The pitch presentations are available below.

In the afternoon, Prof. João Ventura showed a preview of his next book on science communication Discussions around a candle, and Professors Joana Mendonça and Carlos Silva coordinated a "world cafe" -  a structured group conversational process for knowledge sharing - focused on some of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

In the end, as in all that is good, the day passed in a flash.
