NOVA organic units Directors that are responsible for research on Public Health will gather in a round table, to discuss strategies and approaches.

ITQB NOVA Dean, Cláudio M. Soares, highlights "Public Health is fundamental for the well-being of the whole population, and it requires strong investment in research, but also in health professionals and education for the implementation of best practices in the field. Successful Public Health programs have to plan adequate outreach activities, and also to include technology transfer and study its economic implications”.
