This was the second edition of the annual cycle of the Caminhos do Conhecimento/Streams of Knowledge conferences, organized in honour of Prof. José Mariano Gago, on his birthday. Other than recalling the national and international legacy of Mariano Gago, 2017’s conference also instituted the celebration of the National Scientists Day, thus designated by the Portuguese Parliament to commemorate and acknowledge the historic, pertinent and innovative role of the scientific community, for the advancement of knowledge and, therefore, for the progress and welfare of society.

The conference addressed the question “Portugal, a country of science, culture and knowledge – How to strengthen this purpose?”

Dr. Rasekoala was invited as the Keynote Speaker and delivered a Keynote Address entitled, ‘Frameworks for Colourful Science Communication: The European Landscape, Globalization and International Co-operation’.
