At the end of February, AWSi ESR(s) Daniel Mora and Shubham Jain travelled to Paris to attend the European Researchers’ Night together with hundreds of high profile researchers, investigators, and young people from around the world, who meet at the 15th edition of the European Researchers’ Night: “Enter the survey” in Paris, France.
European Researchers’ Nights are public events all around Europe, dedicated to bringing researchers closer to the general public. The events are looking to showcase the diversity of research and highlight the impact on daily lives. Besides, motivate young people to embark on research careers. The events promote how researchers contribute to our society by displaying their work in an interactive and engaging forum.
From 2018-2019, 55 projects have been implemented in 371 cities across Europe and beyond. During the 2018 Night, over 1.5 million visitors attended. However, official statistics from this year are still not available.
The European Researchers’ Night in Paris is supported by the European Commission, the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, as well as the Ile de France Region.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 765395.
