Hugo Plácido da Silva, IT researcher, participated last November 2020 in the Cycle of Debates promoted by Ciência Viva entitled “No, we are not going to talk about SARS-COV-2 I COVID-19. But there is an elephant in the room.”

These were a series of debates based on science and knowledge, with a view to a better understanding of how to deal with the pandemic.

Hugo Plácido da Silva talked about the importance of ICT in this framework, the present, and the future, in a panel composed by Sandra Almeida, APDC - Portuguese Association for the Development of Communications, Vasco Pedro, Unbabel, and moderation by Ana Noronha, Ciência Viva.

Excerpts from these debates have now been published in a book. More info on the Ciência Viva webpage:
