On June 16th, at 4 p.m. (Lisbon time, 12 p.m. in Rio de Janeiro), an online colloquium will be held on the impacts of COVID-19, organized by CESAM.
Since 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has been a constant in people´s lives worldwide. This disease has affected, and still affects, humanity, having been responsible for millions of infections and deaths all over the world. Since its outbreak and the identification of SARS-CoV-2, several scientists, from different fields of knowledge, have made efforts not only to contain and mitigate the virus but also to understand its impact in the various areas of human activity. SARS-CoV-2 is not only a virus that causes great damage to health and can lead to death, but also responsible for a radical change in the way we live, we relate to others and the world.
From the lessons that the pandemic brought us, 10 CESAM researchers, in a 5-minute pitch, will bring to light the work they have carried out in the frame of the detection of SARS-CoV-2, of the impact of COVID-19 on health, on air quality and climate change, soils, small-scale fisheries, aquaculture, challenges and research on sustainability and also energy consumption.
The COVID CESAM COLLOQUIUM aims to create a space for sharing, reflection and discussion on the impacts of COVID-19 and invites you to be part of the debate and the solution so that together we can create a better future: “Build Back Better”.
Registration is free but mandatory, open until June 15th here.
Communications will be in Portuguese. Titles and abstracts can be consulted in English here.
