The Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM congratulates Fernando Pereira for his merit in achieving this stage in his scientific and teaching career in the area of Catalysis and Carbon Materials!

LSRE-LCM at Ciência 2017 - Lisbon

July 3-5, 2017

The National Meeting with Science and Technology, Ciência 2017, was held at the Lisbon Congress Center on July 3 to 5, 2017.

This year's meeting celebrated the 20th anniversary of the creation of the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) and promoted an open debate on the main subjects. Ciência 2017 brought together researchers and participants from all sectors of society and all areas of scientific research and development.

LSRE-LCM researchers where present at this meeting showcasing their ongoing research work.
