The 14th edition of the European Researchers’ Night will take place on Friday 27 September. Events in more than 350 cities in 30 EU and neighbouring countries will give people the opportunity to discover science in a fun way.
The European Researchers’ Night is a European scientific dissemination project promoted by the European Commission within the Marie Sktodowska-Curie actions of the Horizon 2020 programme, which has been taking place simultaneously in more than 350 European cities since 2005. Its main objective is to bring the general public and researchers closer together in an informal and fun way, as well as to highlight the positive impact of their work on our daily lives and to promote research careers.
The Science is Wonderful! event will take place in Brussels, which aims to bring the world of science closer to the public with a free exhibition. Fighting cancer, curbing global warming, preventing hunger and drought, facilitating human life in space… all these are part of the variety of activities that schools, families and young people can discover at the event. Through hands-on experiments, live demonstrations, face-to-face talks with researchers, Science is Wonderful! shows how science impacts our daily lives.
EDC of Almeria’s participation
On Friday 27th of September, the European Documentation Centre of Almeria will participate in the event in the Rambla Federico García Lorca in Almeria from 18:00 to 22:00 hs. on the occasion of the European Researchers’ Night. As part of our participation, we will present activities related to invention in Europe and the world, through the exhibition of a “deck of cards” of the main inventions in history. In addition, the European Documentation Centre of Almeria will hold a raffle to win a merchandising kit of the centre, will distribute european documentation and will bring European Research and Innovation a little closer to Almeria’s citizens.
In the last edition of the European Researchers’ Night our activity was based on the role of European women in research. You can see a summary of what we did in Children and Research and The European Researchers’ Night 2018.
See you there!
