The organizers intended to mark it symbolically with a gathering that had the theme “Post-Covid Era: What lessons can we learn from the pandemics of the past?”

The celebration included an introductory presentation “The pandemics in the past: the flu of 1918/19” carried out by Doctor Helena da Silva, historian and researcher at the Contemporary History Institute of Universidade Nova de Lisboa (IHC-NOVA-FCSH). After the presentation, a gathering was held on the previously mentioned theme.

The invited guests participated within the scope of the “round table”, with a virtual discussion about where future development opportunities are intended, and their impact in technological, economic, social terms, but also in terms of engineering education and professional skills.
