DRIVE was in the European Researcher’s Night!
The European Researchers’ Night, funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA), is a Europe-wide public event that brings researchers closer to the public. The Night provides researchers the opportunity to showcase the diversity of science and its impact on citizens’ daily lives, and to stimulate interest in research careers – especially among young people. The events highlight how researchers contribute to our society by displaying their work in an interactive and engaging forum.
In 2019, 55 projects were implemented. The projects took place in 433 cities from 27 countries across Europe and beyond. Over 1.6 million visitors attended the event and over 36,000 researchers took part – including 955 MSCA fellows!
In 2020, the European Researchers’ Night took place on Friday, 27 November. Our fellow, Stavroula Zagkou participated in the virtual event organised by the Université Jean Monnet of Saint-Etienne. For this year’s (special) online format, the theme was ”Petits secrets nocturnes” (Little Secrets of the Night). The participants had to take their own portrait picture, write a short text and film a short video, about their research or their life as researchers.
