European Night of Researchers 2013
ICS participates for the first time in the European Night of Researchers. A group of researchers will be on hand at the National Museum of Natural History and Science to debate with the audience on what Portuguese society will be like in 2020.
One of the issues under discussion is: In 2020, a third of the electricity consumed in Portugal with come from renewable sources, like the sun, the wind, or the tides.
Ciência Viva: Science in the holidaysSocial attitudes and perceptions on renewable energy
A one week internship, doing sociological research, for 4 secondary school students (19th-2rd3 August 2013).
Renewable energies have been identified as crucial not only for climate change mitigation but also as a solution to the dependence on fossil fuels. In Portugal, this sector registered a very strong development in the last decade. In order to continue this development, it is very important to know the attitudes and perceptions of the public on wind, solar, wave, biomass energy. This internship will provide the young participants the experience of conducting a mini-research project. It will allow them to experience the different stages of sociological research, as well as some of its methods and techniques: looking for bibliography, building hypothesis, designing and application of tools to collect empirical information (statistical data analysis, media analysis, interviews and questionnaire survey). Fieldwork will take place in Lisbon. In the end, the research results will be presented at a small conference in the form of a powerpoint and poster. This research will also serve as a motto to the discussion of some important issues about the scientific work in sociology: questioning common sense, neutrality and objectivity and their limits and contribution to policy formulation.
