Outreach Events


The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) both organizes science outreach events and regularly participates in events promoted by the governmental and non-governmental associations, where the research conducted in the Laboratory is presented.

Ciência Aberta (Open Science)

Every year, the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) opens its doors to thousands of people interested in learning more about science. The event includes guided visits to the four National Laboratories, exhibitions, interactive stations and informal lectures.

Brazilian National Science and Technology Week

The Brazilian National Science and Technology Week (SNCT) is coordinated by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and Communications (MCTIC) and has been held nationally since 2004 with the collaboration of institutions for teaching, dissemination and research. Its main purpose is to mobilize the population, especially children and young people, around themes and activities of science and technology.

Annual Meeting of the Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science

The Annual Meeting of the Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science (SBPC) has been promoted since 1948. The meeting is attended by representatives of scientific societies, authorities and managers of the national science and technology system. The event serves as an important forum for the dissemination of the advances of science in several areas of knowledge and for the debate of public policies related to the theme. The entrance to the SBPC meeting is free and has an exhibition aimed at the general public and participants of the meeting with more than one hundred science, technology and innovation institutions.
