TALENTI FOR SCIENCE is part of a series of events leading up to the European Researchers’ Night together with the “Festival of science and research 2020” (22-30 September) in Viterbo, Cerveteri, Tarquinia and “Navigando con la ricerca” (September 27) in Livorno.

The NET project and the European Researchers’ Night

Ten of the most important public research bodies and universities in our country adhere to the NET Project: CNR (which is also the lead partner), ENEA, INAF, INGV, ISPRA, CINECA, University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, Sapienza University of Rome, University of Tuscia, UNINETTUNO International Telematic University.

The idea of ​​the NET Project was born from the experience of ScienzaInsieme which for two years has seen numerous Research Institutes and Universities collaborate together on the issues of dissemination, training and information that had already participated in other editions of the European Researchers’ Night and that last year they had already animated the science nights of the Cinevillage.

The European Researchers’ Night is a HORIZON 2020 project, realized with the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, and takes place every year in 400 cities of the European Union, involving 1.6 million visitors, thousands of researchers, hundreds of Research, research bodies, universities, associations and numerous other subjects engaged in scientific dissemination.

The scientific appointments at CineVillage are an important component of the “waiting for the night” path to raise awareness and approach the “European Researchers’ Night” which this year will be celebrated on 27 November 2020.
