The i3S Library Talks podcast is a collection of episodes offering a unique perspective on what it is to be a researcher. Covering various scientific disciplines, our guests speak of choices, influences, serendipity and adversity, and all other aspects that make up life and career. Discover a new story meshing lab and life every week and, perhaps, find the inspiration for your own endeavors. __ Ao longo dos anos, temos recebido tantos convidados conceituados que seria uma pena continuar a guardar tantas experiências e conhecimento só para nós. Resultado deste desejo de partilha, o podcast “i3S Library Talks” reúne uma série de conversas que oferecem uma perspetiva singular do que é ser investigador. Abrangendo as mais variadas disciplinas científicas, os convidados falam de escolhas, influências, casualidades e adversidades, e de todos os fatores decisivos na construção de um percurso pessoal e profissional. Todas as semanas, descubra uma nova história que cruza vida e laboratório e talvez encontre a inspiração de que precisa para seguir os seus próprios projetos.
