Mediterranean Researcher’s Night, MEDNIGHT 2021, which was founded last year on the Mediterranean Spanish Arch, has expanded its reach, making it a science channel in Mediterranean countries. MEDNIGHT 2021 consists of a consortium of 13 regions in Spain, Greece, and Cyprus.
MEDNIGHT 2021 will take place on September 24, 2021 and is a joint scientific event to demonstrate to the general public the importance of science and research conducted in Mediterranean countries – with an emphasis on the role of women in the field – with the aim of tackling problems in the Mediterranean region.
The activities and events of MEDNIGHT 2021 will focus on the following topics: climate and clean energy, sea and pollution, geology and biodiversity, diet and nutrition, health, anthropology and history, pioneering scientists, and the future. All topics are in line with the objectives of the Green Deal, as this year’s European Researchers’ Night is dedicated to the European Green Agreement.
