Nit de la Recerca

Dins del programa H2020 de la Comissió Europea

La Nit Europea de la Recerca és un projecte dins del programa H2020 de la Comissió Europea.  Dins d’aquest programa i coincidint amb l’últim divendres de mes, més de 300 ciutats europees celebren la seva Nit.

L’objectiu principal de la Nit de la Recerca és poder acostar la recerca i els investigadors a la societat en general. D’alguna manera es vol trencar els estereotips dels investigadors, així com promocionar la recerca dins dels més joves per tal de fomentar les vocacions científiques.
