The DARIAH Annual Event 2024 will be hosted at NOVA FCSH, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, at Avenida de Berna campus of NOVA FCSH (Avenida de Berna, 26 C) in Lisbon, Portugal. 

Getting to Lisbon

Lisbon is served by an international airport, Humberto Delgado Airport, located just 7 km from the city centre. The Humberto Delgado Airport is one of Europe’s busiest airports, offering flights from about 58 international airlines, having transported over 28 million passengers in 2022. The airport connects Lisbon to major European capitals and is also an important hub to the Americas and Africa.

Public transport

From the airport, you can easily reach the city by metro (Aeroporto Station – Red Line), taking about 20 minutes to reach the city centre (25 minutes to the conference venue – red line). To have access to the metro, passengers must acquire a Viva Viagem card (0,50€), which is valid for one year and can be charged for use at the metro, in the bus and tram networks (Carris) and in the train network (CP). A single Metro/Carris ticket costs 1,80€, which can be used for an unlimited number of travels for up to one hour. There are also daily tickets for Metro/Carris (6,80€), and Metro/Carris/CP (10,8 €). Lisbon also has several taxi and ride-sharing services that can easily be accessed throughout the city or via the major international apps.

Most of the Metro stations are prepared for passengers with reduced mobility, offering elevators and ramps for accessibility purposes. Additionally, 80% of the bus and tram fleet of Carris is equipped with full accessibility solutions for reduced mobility passengers. The train network, operated by CP, offers on request a service for special needs customers for boarding and disembarking the trains.

Lisbon is a bicycle-friendly city offering an expanding bike infrastructure with more than 60 km bike lanes. The city has a public bicycle network, with a station just outside the conference venue, which is connected to the main areas of the city. Shared bicycle and scooter services are also available throughout the city.
