It’s official, the EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS NIGHT will be in Europe again in 2022! We will be back on september 30th with lots of online and onsite activities since the European Commission, for the first time, has funded the BlueNIGHTs project that aims at strengthening the link between researchers and the territory where they live by preparing and organising events and activities in some of the cities representing the main EU RSAs.

But pre-events will be organized in a shared specific program with the all partner consortium: “Getting Ready for the BlueNIGHTs by all the partners in collaboration with local stakeholders, starting in late spring 2022 even if mainly concentrated in August-September.

Their purpose is to: i) raise awareness of the public about ERN and promoting the participation to the main event of September; ii) offer to the public different ways to meet and interact with researchers, within different contexts and with different degrees of involvement during the all duration of the project.

Therefore, to Get ready for the EU BLUE Researchers’ Night we have planned  for you:

Science & Coffee

A series of scientific coffee (1-3 per partner) on different ocean issues will be organized onsite in the late afternoon, hosted in one or more public places (e.g. cafeterias, cultural centers, etc.) in each partner city center. Each scientific coffee will be recorded and showed in streaming on the virtual platform. Let’s see the program.

BlueScience meet BlueSchools

Researchers of all the partner institutions will meet the pupils at schools. Researchers will act as “Ocean Ambassadors” of ERN and for a sustainable use of the ocean. See WP4 for more details about this initiative. The program will be available soon.

Shop Windows by the Sea

Shop keepers in the different partner cities/RSAs will show info and object about ocean topic with a dedicated BlueNIGHTs QR code sticked on their shop door.

 

Walking on the Sea Traces

Between May and September, a series of guided tour (1-3 per partner) dealing with different ocean topics organized at different location in each RSAs and guided by local researchers. The possibility to visit local research vessels and aquariums will be envisaged (e.g., Finland, France and Malta). The program will be available soon. Let’s see the program

Why become Ocean Literate?

Between May and September, a series of guided tour (1-3 per partner) dealing with different ocean topics organized at different location in each RSAs and guided by local researchers. The possibility to visit local research vessels and aquariums will be envisaged (e.g., Finland, France and Malta). The program will be available soon.

A Window on Another Sea

A series of interactive video installation (i.e., totem, screen) will be installed at each partners venue showing different EU RSAs and local marine landscapes, with videos realised by each partner about their city seafront/waterfront to create connections between RSAs involved in BlueNIGHTs.

Tell Me of your marine Waters at Home

A first art/photographic contest to illustrate local characteristics of the “marine environment” at/close to home, with sections dedicated to: schools, professional photographers, researchers and general public. The artwork will be shown on the local video installation and voted by the public/citizens. Let’s see the participation rules and guidelines

Why marine science matter for ocean conservation?

A series of interactive video installation (i.e., totem, screen) will be installed at each partners venue showing different EU RSAs and local marine landscapes, with videos realised by each partner about their city seafront/waterfront to create connections between RSAs involved in BlueNIGHTs.
