Previous Edition

I Congress in Health Sciences Research 2015

26-28 November, 2015, Covilhã

The first edition of the International Congress in Health Sciences Research: Towards Innovation and Entrepreneurship took place in November 2015. Endocrinology and Neurosciences were the chosen thematic for this debutant edition, which was complemented with a special focus on entrepreneurship and the communication between academic research and enterprises. Covilhã was awarded with the presence of many international and national investigators, which gave insightful perspectives of their scientific work. The scientific program was very interesting, allowing young and senior researchers to discuss important questions and share different challenges. Social activities were organized in parallel, providing a relaxed environment for Researchers to interact outside the scientific debate.
