Would you like to learn first-hand about research and researchers? Did you ever think about becoming a researcher? Watch the video and get a taste of the latest Science is Wonder-ful! event.
On the 28 September 2016 in Brussels, the European Commission jointly with the Parlamentarium (European Parliament) is organising a European Researchers' Night event open for all to enjoy science while learning about the EU institutions, the journey of the European integration, and their impact on our daily lives.
The NIGHT event presents projects from Marie Skłodowska-Curie researchers in order to get people, especially young people, interested and engaged in science and research.
Live experiments, face-to-face chats with current researchers, a trip through the European Union integration, and a debate, are only some of what is on offer at this event in Brussels.
Bus facilities available for schools in Belgium, booking from 15 June - first come, first served!
Save the date and join us the 28 September at the Parlamentarium.
"Months of hard work for one night, worth it when you see the ecstatic look on a child's face as they watch an experiment."
"A wonderful journey from a relatively small scale event to a huge umbrella event linking up all corners of Estonia. New and exciting activities are added every year. We show that research can change the world."
"A splendid initiative, a great opportunity to interact with people in an atmosphere of enthusiasm and sharing."
"The power to change public opinion about science and scientists, showing their work in an amazing and accessible way, attracting young people to science careers."
"A unique opportunity to showcase my "Face Reader"( basic and applied research on emotional responses, using our advanced facial coding system), in a relaxed atmosphere with some interesting experiments. See you this year!"
"A great opportunity for researchers to present their work and to communicate with the general public. For the public a chance to touch, feel and smell science!
A tremendous team experience during which all have to speak the same language and support each other. And immense joy when a child, after having asked a million questions, says to you "these little animals are my friends now, I had so much fun!"
