The city was built along the hills overlooking the Douro river estuary, and its historical center was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO in 1996. Its rich history which dates back to many centuries enriches its cultural wealth as the city is one of the oldest European centers. The city's actual name is Porto, but due to oral evolution between the definite articles in Portuguese ('O') and English ('The'), its English name evolved from oral evolution and is now referred as 'Oporto' in modern literature.
After the success of the 34th edition of the Youth Science Meeting, in Lisbon, this year we challenge you to know the inner beauties of Oporto. The town that gave the country (and port wine) its very name, Oporto is the second-largest metropolis after Lisbon. It is also an industrial and commercial center that is constantly buzzing.
Join the discussion of your scientific project with youngsters from the entire world and discover the innovations that will mark your future. Watch talks about the latest innovations and get your hands on work with workshops from the most different areas, like biology and informatics. And the best part? You can do all of this while you enjoy the big range of diversity of stunning landscapes and the iconic sighseeing's that Oporto has to offer that certainly will give you the best time of your life!
