Mulheres na Ciência (Women in science) is an exhibition that gathers more than 100 portraits of Portuguese researchers, made by António Pedro Ferreira, Clara Azevedo, Daniel Rocha, José Carlos Nascimento and Luísa Ferreira, upon a Ciência Viva invitation. It is a tribute to women scientists in Portugal, which represente 46% of researchers and whose contribution has been key to the progress of the national Science and Technology and its international reputation.

Two CQE researchers have been selected to take part in this exhibition: Alexandra Antunes and Teresa Duarte, among seven IST women. We would like to congratulate them and invite you to visit the exhibiton. On the 8th of March, International Women’s Day, the book allusive to this exhibition will be released in Pavilhão do Conhecimento.
