The Festival is organized by Ciencia Viva, EuroScience and EuroPAWS, in association with the city of Lisbon.
Awards Ceremony 2015
There are several productions across Europe nominated for 11 categories. During the event we will have the opportunity to watch short clips of the finalists and find out who the winners are, in a ceremony inspired by the Oscars.
This evening, keyspeaker Mark McCaughrean, Senior Science Advisor at European Space Agency, will talk about Rosetta Mission, one of the most ambitious missions in planetary science this decade. This will be followed by a panel discussion with specialists in SCIENCE and MEDIA.
Mark McCaughrean is responsible for communicating the scientific results from ESA’s astronomy, heliophysics, planetary, and fundamental physics missions. Mark and his team currently have spacecraft working at Venus, Mars, Saturn, and around the Earth, as well as looking at the Sun. They are also building new missions to Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter’s icy moons, as well as new space telescopes, some of which will be searching for Earth-like planets in orbit around nearby stars
