The European Researchers’ Night is a Europe-wide public event dedicated to popular science and fun learning. It takes place each year on the last Friday in September. 1,500,000 visitors at around 30 countries and over 300 cities are involved each year, in an institution that holds 12 years.

Greece is consistent in its appointment and has been in charge of organizing events since the start of the event in 2005. This year, 11 events were planned in 9 Greek cities covering geographically all over the country. In particular, on Friday, September 29, events were organized in the following cities: Athens (a. National Technical University of Athens and b. Hellenic Cosmos Center for Culture), Thessaloniki, Patras, Heraklion (a. Foundation for Research and Technology – HELLAS and b. CretAquarium), Rethimno, Karditsa, Xanthi, Corinth and Kalamata.

In the event organized by National Technical University of Athens, the NTUA group had the opportunity to inform and familiarize the public with activities of the Green INSTRUCT Project through the display of a Green INSTRUCT poster and the distribution of flyers.

The Green INSTRUCT project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 723825.
