JRC Ispra Open Day 2011
Record number of visitors at JRC Open Day, Ispra, 14 May
On 14 May 2011, the JRC organised and hosted its biggest event since its foundation. 10,292 people turned up at the JRC Ispra site to look at, and actively engage in, over 80 activities which showcased the JRC's work to serve society, stimulate innovation and support EU legislation. The curiosity shown by the thousands of enthusiastic visitors reflected their interest both in the JRC and in science and technology in general.
Visitors got to choose the activities which interested them most - whether is was climate change, nanobiotechnology and GMOs, structural assessment or renewable energy, there was something for everyone and for all age groups.
