World Cultural Council Award Ceremony 2022 – dates to be announced soon


The World Cultural Council (WCC) and the University of Coimbra (UC) have decided to postpone this year’s WCC Award Ceremony (to be held in November 2020) due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on an international event of this standing.

The Ceremony at Coimbra, presenting the “Albert Einstein”and “José Vasconcelos” Awards, will instead take place in 2022, coinciding with the 250th anniversary of the Pombaline Reforms, which opened the University to scientific and experimental teaching and the ideals of the Enlightenment.
