Luso is the annual meeting of Portuguese researchers and students in the United Kingdom and it is organised by PARSUK – the Portuguese Association of Researchers and Students in the United Kingdom. Luso 2017 will take place on the 3rd of June 2017, in Edinburgh.

Given the challenges imposed by Brexit and the new political context in Europe, we chose “Science Diplomacy in a Brave New World” as the theme for this edition of Luso. It is primordial to discuss and define a strategy for the Portuguese science diplomacy in order to continue the development of Portugal as a competitive and innovative country. We consider Luso the perfect opportunity for the highly qualified Portuguese living in the United Kingdom to give their contribute for this discussion.

We hope to see you in Edinburgh!
