The UMinho Prize for Initiation in Scientific Research was created with the aim of providing an opportunity to bring students, from the 1st cycle and the first three years of integrated Masters, closer to real contexts of scientific research and insertion in research teams that they work on creating new and relevant knowledge by engaging them in supervised research activities that foster their interest in science.

The presentations were held at the Pedagogical Complex 1, on the Campus de Gualtar, at the University of Minho.
