Science around Coffee

To counter the scarcity of opportunities for informal interaction between society and the scientific community, these relaxed talks around a cup of coffee will introduce a guest scientist and allow for the discussion of such issues as: What kind of science is done in Portugal? Who are our scientists? How do they work? What do they research? Which results do they obtain?
