Nuno Loureiro, MIT
Date & time: Friday, March 27th, 14:00h
This will be the first of a series of monthly discussion sessions on Quantum for Plasmas & Plasmas for Quantum (QPPQ).
A recent report of the United States Department of Energy “Quantum for Fusion, Fusion for Quantum” has highlighted several opportunities for scientific discovery and technology advances at the interface of quantum computing and quantum technologies with fusion and plasma physics.
The goal of these monthly discussions, hosted by the Group of Lasers and Plasmas at IPFN, and the Physics of Information and Quantum Technologies Group at IT, is to foster and promote the dialogue across these two areas and to promote the interdisciplinary interaction between the researchers working in these fields.

Communicating science outside the scientific world is not an easy task: the language used “between peers” is difficult to understand and the lack of a narrative thread can make the subjects uninteresting and too complicated. That is why the opportunity to send a message that is important to all of us gets easily lost, especially in an "era" of misinformation and "fake news". Com-municating science in a clear and accessible way can be the path that leads to a science for all.
This workshop is aimed at all the researchers and professors who need to communicate science to the general public. No registration is required.
With a degree in Forestry Engineering (from Instituto Superior de Agronomia), she taught cartography and remote sensing at the Polytechnic Institute of Tomar, but ended up dedicating herself to the area of communication and language.
She worked for the company Português Claro, was a jury for the Access to Culture - Simple Language award in 2018. She is currently responsible for the “Comunicar Ciência Clara” course, which has had two editions at the Instituto Superior de Agronomia and has passed through institutions such as MARE - IPL and Montis. She also the author of the blog: “Estrada para Damasco”, dedicated to communicating science in a clear way. More Information..
