European Researchers’ Night (ERN) will take place on 24 September, an event celebrating the diversity of science and the impact it has on people’s daily lives. The ERN, funded by the European Commission, is included within the Marie Skłodowska-Marie Actions, aimed at developing research talent.
On that Friday, across the European continent, a number of activities will take place with the aim of bringing science closer to citizens, raising awareness of the different research projects being carried out in Europe, and increasing interest in science among young people.
On the event’s website, you can consult the activities that will be held in person in each country, so you can come and meet the researchers in person or sign up for competitions, games, and exhibitions.
ECOVAL will participate in the European Researchers Showcase, an online event within the ERN, which will transmit through Twitter, videos of less than 2 minutes in which researchers from all areas will show in a fun way what their work consists of and what projects they are developing. The responsible for explaining the foundations and objectives of ECOVAL to the European public will be Ander Castro, a researcher at CETAQUA, coordinating partner of the project. Don’t miss it!
