In 2021, ITQB NOVA is joining Ciência Viva - National Agency for Scientific and Technological Culture and Institute for Research and Innovation in Health (i3S) to organise another edition of the European Researcher's Night. The project REGGAE (Researchers for European Green Growth and Education) will promote different activities for different audiences, in 21 venues all over the country. 

In Oeiras, the first edition of this event will happen at the Oeiras Marina on 24 September, and it will count with the presence of several GREEN-IT researchers. The programme will offer games, debates, live demos, workshops, talks, among many other activities, for the public of every age. Beginning at 4 p.m., the event will extend through the evening and night, ending around 10 p.m. with a special session. Learn more about the preliminary calendar for activities here. The event is promoted by ITQB NOVA, in partnership with Oeiras Municipality and Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, within the project Ciência Aberta a Oeiras.

Oeiras Municipality has been affirming itself as an environment of Science and Innovation, and so the European Researcher’s Night will count on the participation of different scientific institutions from the city, which will have the opportunity to present their research. The activities might address subjects like circular economy, biodiversity, climate, clean energy, among others, relating to the theme European Green Deal.

The European Researcher’s Night is promoted and funded by the European Commission, within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. It’s a yearly event that takes place on the last Friday of September and the main objective is to demystify the world of research and scientists' work, bringing science closer to the public.
