The award of the Prize to this doctoral programme, which focuses on collections and cultural heritage, shows how the History and Philosophy of Science have aroused a growing interest, both in strictly academic scopes and in various social contexts, from the political to the economic and the cultural, where decisions are strongly influenced and conditioned by technical-scientific developments.
The Prize was announced last Friday, 27 May, at a ceremony held at the Military Academy, in Lisbon, where the APOM jury highlighted institutions and personalities in the field of museology and Portuguese heritage in more than 30 categories. Several researchers from the IHC have already been recognised in the past, either for their research or for their direct intervention in Portuguese museums. This year, it was our educational mission that was distinguished.
