Discover the European Researchers’ Night
We invite you to discover the human side of research through a direct contact and conversation with experts. It Is the European Researchers’ Night, which we will celebrate next September 29 in the eight Andalusian capitals for the sixth consecutive year and at the same time that other 250 European cities.
The 2016 edition reached the participation of 250 cities in 29 European countries with the aim of bringing researchers to the general public, demonstrate the relationship between research and the daily life, and disseminate scientific carers among young people.
WHAT WE HAVE IN 2017
Experiments, workshops, experiences, plays, monologues … Everything is valid to bring research closer to citizens in a rigorous and fun way. The program has also the ‘micromeetings’, where participants can raise any doubts and questions about the research project they have known.
The initiative, called ‘Open Researchers’, offers activities, not only in research centres but also in the busiest areas of the eight Andalusian capitals. By installing tents, researchers will close their work to citizenship.
The implication from the beginning of the researchers, the real protagonists of the project is key of the activity success, which records every year a growing number of scientists and participating in the event. The event will bring together more than 1,500 researchers to show their work to the public in 2017.
WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE EVENT
The event aims to emphasize the figure of the researcher in society. The scientists will share with visitors their hobbies and their work, so that citizens can meet, for example, a doctor writing poems, enjoy music with performances by a group of scientists or participate in a historical-scientific tourist route.
