  • Workshop "Communicating Biotechnology through Art"
    In today's world, science communication is more important than ever. By using the visual arts to communicate scientific ideas, we can connect with a wider audience and inspire people to take an interest in science. In this workshop on communicating science through the visual arts, we will explore how to use digital imagery to convey scientific concepts in an engaging and accessible way. We will learn how to tell stories and express ideas through images, using everyday objects and lighting to create representations of science.
  • Expobiotec:
    The Expobiotec 2023 - VI Fair of Biotechnology and Bioengineering, with the theme "Scale Biotechnology", intends to consolidate the symbiosis between academia and the business and industrial world, to emphasize the CEB research activities and to foster the interaction with our students and the Society, through a show of biotechnology, bioengineering and chemical engineering initiatives in the city of Braga.
  • LabToMarket Workshop
    In this session, we will deconstruct a pitch focused on the biotech area and see, individually, all the parts that make up a pitch: from problem identification, value proposition, business models, roadmap and milestones, etc. We will clarify some 'golden rules' and understand how to get this information in the context of our industry in order to convince potential investors, partners, and customers. During the afternoon (2pm to 4pm) we will have 1:1 sessions of 15min mentoring to advise pitches of existing projects.
