European Researchers’ Night: September 30th

22 September 2022
All the events will take place at Magazzino 26 in Porto Vecchio

The European Researchers Night returns to Trieste again this year, for the first time in one of the most magnificent places in the city: Porto Vecchio. Adults and children will be able to participate in games, shows, workshops, experiments and talk on the many topics on which the research institutions of Trieste work every day.

The main topics will be climate change, sustainable development, the health of our seas and our land. But it will also be about nutrition, neuroscience, investigative techniques, smart cities, stars and planets. Through new formats and participatory activities, the issues will be addressed with the aim of transmitting the state of the research and the concrete hypotheses for the future.

The European Researchers’ Night is an initiative promoted by the European Commission that every year involves thousands of researchers and institutions in all European countries.

In Trieste the Night is called SHARPER, from the name of the European project. SHARPER Trieste is organized by Immaginario Scientifico, together with the Department of Education and Family Policies of the Municipality of Trieste and the scientific institutions of Trieste Città della Conoscenza.
