The TV series “1 Minute of Astronomy “, produced by the Science Office and winner of the National Multimedia Award 2010, will be the first of eight Portuguese documentaries to be shown at the Researchers’ Night 2011, on the 23rd September, in Porto.

The exchange of ideas and experiences this initiative provides is intended to contribute to building a better image of researchers to the public and demonstrate that science is not as complicated as you think after all.

Promoted and funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development, the European Researchers’ Night runs on the same day in several European countries and Israel. In Portugal, 15 cities will host events.

In Porto, this year’s edition features a cycle of Portuguese science documentaries, entitled “Scientific Shorts – Scientific Cinema Cycle,” a marathon of eight films shown throughout the day (23rd, between 17h30 and 24h), at the Reitoria of the University of Porto, in a partnership between with the Associação Viver a Ciência (VAC), the Asociación de Amigos da Casa das Ciencias (AACC) and the Mostra de Ciência e Cinema da Corunha.
