European Researcher's Night

17, September 2014

Príncipe Real welcomes, next September 26th, the European Researcher's Night 2014, which will take place between 6pm and 1am at the National Museum of Science and Natural history (MUHNAC) and its garden. This is an initiative of the University of Lisbon and Lisbon's Municipality, in partnership with several other universities, scientific associations, laboratories and Research Centres in Lisbon, with free admission and free participation.

To establish relationships between research and society through Citizen Science is this year's proposal of the European Researcher's Night. The call is for Lisboners to come out during the last Friday of September to do "real science", joining hundreds of researchers which will brighten the night at Principe Real.

A dynamic and relaxed debate with known experts, to run with researchers to warm the night and to participate in interactive experiments, contests, world café, scientific cuisine, wine and appetizers tasting, guided visits to exhibitions, are the challenges for that night. But, above all, to know research projects currently under way connected with the city of Lisbon and especially with an impact in sustainability and environment.

Besides Lisbon, the European Researcher's Night will take place, in Portugal, in other cities like Aveiro and Coimbra.
