On the 17th of September 2023, CIIMAR will open its doors, celebrating another edition of the anticipated CIIMAR Open Day, which will take place concurrently with “Dia do Porto de Leixões”.

Get ready to embark on a journey through the world of marine and environmental science, where our researchers will leave the labs to share their passion for science.


From science demonstrations to artistic activities, this event provides the perfect opportunity to explore the aquatic world around us.


Participants will have the opportunity to engage in scientific experiments, observe microorganisms, interact with coastal biodiversity and intertidal zoning aquariums, and discover our model of integrated multi-trophic aquaculture.


Additionally, there will be a mini-fitoETAR, fun games, a revitalizing yoga class, and a roundtable discussion featuring our researchers sharing insights from their expeditions. For our younger attendees, there will be a storytime session and a dance workshop.


The event will also showcase two exhibitions: "Monstros Marinhos" by Ricardo Nicolau de Almeida and "CIIMAR's Scientific Photography Contest 2023".


Ready to make a splash? Join us and be part of a day filled with excitement and exploration!
