European Researchers Night 2020

The European Researchers’ Night, funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, is a Europe-wide public event that brings researchers closer to the general public. The Night showcases the diversity of science and its impact on citizens’ daily lives, stimulating interest in research careers – particularly among young people.

Many of Europlanet 2024 RI’s partners are taking part. Find out what they are doing:

Austrian Academy of Sciences

The aim of the European Researchers’ Night is to get young people excited about science and research. The IWF-Graz also supports this concern and will be using the opportunity of Researchers’ Night to share with videos, chats and a science flash to arouse visitors’ curiosity for some of its wide-ranging research topics.

University of Bologna
