Once again this year we’re joining forces with European Researchers’ Night, an annual event celebrating science and research, which takes place simultaneously in several hundred cities across Europe and beyond.
Join us at the Hellenic Cosmos Cultural Centre for this year’s celebrations being held on 27 September 2019 in towns and cities throughout Greece and discover what researchers really do and why it matters in our daily lives!
The world of research will open its doors to students and educators through presentations, experiments, interactive activities designed for students and teachers’ workshops.
A variety of pre-events will take place before the main event aimed at raising awareness of the aims of both European Researchers’ Night and of the organisers.
Admission is free.

European Researchers’ Night is a European Commission programme initiated in 2005, which, having gained its place among the most important initiatives to promote science, is celebrated in all participating cities on the last Friday of September every year. The activity is part of the People programme (Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions) under the auspices of the European Union’s 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.
