The Mednight project is launched in Limnos
Universities, research centers and science and technology agencies from Greece, Cyprus, the Valencian Community and the Murcia Region gathered on the Greek island of Lemnos to present the activities of the Mediterranean Researchers’ Night (MEDNIGHT). The activities begin this summer in various cities of the Mediterranean basin.
The meeting for the international launch of the MEDNIGHT project took place on June 3 and 4 on the Greek island of Lemnos. It was coordinated by SciCo Greece and the Department of Food and Nutrition Sciences of the University of the Aegean, with the support of the Municipality of Lemnos. These are the details of the program:
Objective of the activities: to promote Mediterranean science
All of the activities presented have a common objective: to promote and showcase Mediterranean science, especially emphasizing the work carried out by female researchers.
MEDNIGHT 2021 has identified eight subject areas that cover the most challenging fields for the Mediterranean basin and in which scientists have an indispensable role: Geology and biodiversity, Sea and pollution, Climate and clean energies, Diet and nutrition, Life and health, History and heritage, Pioneering female scientists and the Future.
MEDNIGHT will be celebrated within the framework of the European Researchers’ Night, a project to disseminate science promoted and financed by the European Commission as part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie activities (subsidy agreement no. 101036107) of the Horizon 2020 program.
