Event: Focus IN CD presented on "Night of researchers" in Rijeka

28. September 2018

The University of Rijeka (EU Projects Center) is organizing a "Night of Researchers" on Friday, 28th September 2018, from 17 to 22 o'clock in the Tower Center of Rijeka. Three Croatian partners, Primorje Gorsky Kotar County, Univerity Hospital Rijeka and Celiac Diseas Society from Rijeka will present project activities to the public, set up banners and share leaflets.

The "Night of Researchers" is a manifestation that is organized in a fun and easy way to raise public awareness of the importance of scientific research for society and to overcome the prejudices that often exist in the scientific research community. Its goal is to bring researchers and their challenging and interesting job to the public and allow everyone to become scientists and researchers for one evening.

The researcher's night is traditionally held last month in the 9th month, and in addition to Rijeka, this year is held at the same time in three other Croatian cities: Zagreb, Split and Pula, as well as in three hundred cities in 35 countries across Europe. A rich program has been prepared, consisting of experiments and demonstrations, simulation of courtroom, earthquake demonstration and excavation, cryptography and encryption, technological heritage, supercomputing and musical performances and prize draws!

Within Nights, an EU corner booth will be set up, whereby the materials of the EU projects will be presented to the public, thus contributing to the dissemination of projects.
