The European Researchers' Night is a science outreach project promoted by the European Commission as part of the Marie Sktodowska-Curie actions of the Horizon 2020 programme, and has been taking place simultaneously in more than 300 European cities since 2005. Its main objective is to bring researchers closer to citizens so that they can learn about their work, the benefits they bring to society and their impact on everyday life.
On the occasion of the celebration of the European Researchers' Night, IFISC will participate in the scientific dissemination activities organised by the CSIC Representation in the Balearic Islands.
The event will take place in the historic centre of Palma, at Ca n'Oleo from 18:30 to 21:00. Among the activities will be the 'Speed Dating'. This activity, aimed at the general public, will feature scientific staff from centres belonging to and associated with the CSIC Representation in the Balearic Islands, including IFISC pre-doctoral researchers María Martínez-Barbeito, Javier Galván and Annalisa Caligiuri, who will explain in 5 minutes what their research work consists of.
