Venetonight 2018 – The European Researchers’ Night

Tags: | September 28th, 2018

On 28th September, in over 340 cities all across Europe and in neighbouring countries, EU-funded scientists will present their work to the public through fun learning activities. European Researchers’ Night is an open science event that makes science and the work of scientists familiar to audiences all over Europe. Over the course of the day and throughout the night, children, adolescents, adults, older people, students and entrepreneurs can get to know more about science through workshops, meetings with researchers, lectures and laboratory visits.

Come to Venetonight in Padova and visit us at the University of Padova ‘Pediatric Dept.’ stall, where we will be happy to introduce you to our social and educational activities in Uganda at the benefit of HIV-infected women, children and teenagers. Our African projects aim to reduce morbidity and mortality, improve healthcare quality and promote social support, social inclusion and empowerment. We work in close cooperation with Casa Accoglienza alla vita Padre Angelo – ACAVPA (Trento, Italy) and various local hospitals and associations.

Don’t miss our short questionnaire! It’s a great chance to learn more about how medical testing within clinical trials is conducted.health-2082630_1280

All the events are supported by the European Commission as a part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, to boost the careers of researchers. Venetonight Padova will be live streamed on the University of Padova’s Youtube e Facebook channels.
