Chemistry dissemination through Ciência@Bragança project Conference Paper uri icon


  • Ciencia@Bragança was a pioneer project developed at Bragança - Portugal, in an interesting and regular cooperation between a research institution (IPB), a science museum (CCVB) and several media (press, radio and television) during a period of two years. The project aimed to bring science closer to the population, allowing it to discover new concepts and bringing awareness to different subjects related to several scientific domains, including chemistry. The diffusion of scientific information was accomplished through the local press, regional radio stations and television programs and also through posters with scientific curiosities in the city urban furniture. All scientific materials produced are available at the project website Chemistry was a particularly interesting area explored during this project for its widespread use in daily routine. In the scope of the project, several scientific materials have been published, which covered topics on chemistry and its applications, namely food chemistry, essential oils from native plants, chemistry and bioactivity of edible mushrooms, soap manufacture, among many others. it is possible to conclude that this project promoted and disseminated scientific and technological knowledge, particularly in the chemistry and related fields.
