The prize

The José Reis Award for Scientific and Technological Dissemination is individual and is attributed on a rotation basis to one of the three categories: "Journalist in Science and Technology", "Institution or Communication Vehicle" and "Researcher and Writer".

Its creation, in 1978, represents a tribute to the doctor, researcher, journalist and educator, José Reis, who managed to combine an important career as an internationally renowned researcher with the work of explaining science in a didactic way through the press.

The diversity of the winners - including communication vehicles, research institutions, television program teams, as well as researchers and their individual works - proves the importance of the José Reis Award to motivate the creation of the most different mechanisms for scientific and technological dissemination. .
