Ignite IAstro

The Ignite IAstro events intend to bring the communication of Astrophysics and Space Sciences to towns and cities far away from the main urban areas.

The compact format enables the presentation, in less than one hour, of the diversity of topics researched at the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA).

Following the Ignite concept, at each Ignite IAstro event, eight to ten IA researchers present their research in only five minutes each.
