European Researchers' Night: exploring science whilst having fun
If you could become a hero for a day, what kind of hero would you be? One that fights cancer or global warming, prevents hunger or drought, invents devices to counteract handicaps, dreams about making human life possible in space..?
The European Researchers' Night invites you to meet the heroes of science; that is to say, the researchers from different disciplines whose fascinating work can change our lives.
With family, friends, your school or on your own, you will become a scientist for a day, participate in science activities and, most of all, have fun!
All the events will take place - simultaneously - on Friday 30 September, in over 250 cities across Europe and neighbouring countries.
In Brussels, in the framework of this year's edition, the European Commission and the European Parliament are organising "Science is wonder-ful", a special event to illustrate the achievements of Marie Skłodowska-Curie researchers.
Don't miss this mega event! And experience what it is like to be a hero. You will discover the fasciation of research as a career and its significant societal impact.
