BIOPOLIS-CIBIO launches the project "The diary of a scientist”
"The diary of a scientist" is a joint project between Biopolis and PÚBLICO newspaper which aims to celebrate the curiosity that drives the scientific process, while promoting science communication and bringing scientists and journalists closer together.

Working together, scientists and journalists will transform 26 scientific ideas related to Biology into engaging narratives for the general public. These pieces, authored by Biopolis researchers and crafted with the support of experienced journalists, will be published in PÚBLICO throughout August 2024, in print and digital format, with specially designed layouts and infographics.

Scientists from Biopolis who are eligible according to the terms and conditions (linked below) can apply by filling out this form until April 28th at 23:59. An evaluation panel composed of journalists from PÚBLICO will assess the applications to select the 27 with the highest narrative potential. The results of the competition will be announced on May 6th.

The prizes* for the three best pieces, as voted by Público readers will be:
1st Place - 1000€
2nd Place - 750€
3rd Place - 500€
