Venetonight – European Researchers’ Night

European Researchers’ Night is an initiative that has been promoted by the European Commission since 2005, bringing together researchers and the general public in different European cities on the same late summer date, the fourth Friday of September.

European Researchers’ Night is a great chance to entertainingly introduce a public of all ages to the world of research, to open a space for encounter and dialogue with citizens, and to sensitize young people to scientific careers.

On September 30, 2016, citizens in different European cities will be able to visit research centers that are usually not open to the public, to use the latest technology under the guidance of researchers, to participate in experiments, competitions, demonstrations and simulations, and to trade ideas while celebrating with the researchers.
