Mednight is a Mediterranean science dissemination project. It connects knowledge centres from both ends of the Mediterranean Sea. Mednight brings together the participation in a consortium of 10 institutions: FISABIO, INCLIVA, CSIC, MUDIC, El Caleidoscopio, SciCo Cyprus, the University of Messina, the Kadir Has University of Istanbul and the European Association of Women Rectors (EWORA), under the coordination of SciCo Greece.
MEDNIGHT takes place within the framework of the European Night of Researchers (European Researchers’ Night), a scientific dissemination project promoted and financed by the European Commission as part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions (grant agreement No 101061190) of the Horizon 2020 programme.
