This workshop is the final meeting of a project Fonds d’Appui à l’Internationalisation, funded by the UCLouvain, the aim of which is to strengthen research collaborations in mathematics with the University of Coimbra, the University of Padova and the University of Poitiers. The talks at this workshop will highlight the contributions of a number of great scientists who were professors in the universities of the Coimbra Group. Their views of the notion of truth in Science, Philosophy and Religion will also be discussed.
