Project TIMB3 joined the celebration of the International Microrganism Day with a Science Fair at the Gardens of Palácio do Marquês Pombal. The activities target public schools, senior citizens or anyone who wants to discover the essential role that microorganisms play in our health, environment and quality of life. More than 400 people visited these open public activities, organized by researchers from ITQB NOVA with the support of the Oeiras Municipality and the participation of IHMT NOVA – Institute of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine – and IGC – Gulbenkian Institute of Science. One of our team members – Catarina Paquete, from ITQB NOVA – gave a talk about “Microorganisms for a healthy and sustainable environment”.
