European Researcher´s Night

The European Researchers’ Night takes place every year all over Europe and beyond the last Friday of September. In 2015, these popular science events are happening on Friday 25 September in around 300 cities located in 24 European and neighbouring countries

The European Researcher´s Night is dedicated to popular science and fun learning. The evets scheduled are an opportunity to meet researchers, talk to them, and to find out what they really do for society, in interactive and engaging ways. This can be through hands-on experiments, science shows, learning activities for children, guided visits of research labs, science quizzes and more.

These events are supported by the European Commission as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, which is an EU programme to boost European research careers.

TARGEAR will take part in these celebrations for the second time. This year, Prof. Isabel Varela Nieto (CSIC) will organise the conference and workshop ‘The human genome through time: in search of the DNA of Miguel de Cervantes’ in Madrid, and Prof. Michaël Paillasse (AFFICHEM) will share his experience with the attendants at the Researcher’s Night in Toulouse.
