The European Researchers’ Night is back with the aim of making science inclusive and interactive

Today, September 18, at the headquarters on Via Zamboni del.University of Bologna2023 edition of Night of European researcherswhich will be held on September 29 From 6 pm to midnight, especially in… Piazza Lucio Dalla From the Emilian capital.

The event, funded by the European Union, will consist of a performance Projects, exhibitions and games for the publicwhich will make Comprehensive and interactive science. Much attention will be paid to technologywith platforms dedicated to how to “learn” machines, automated agricultural machinery, food engineering, aircraft prototypes for the urban skies, and much more.

Claudia Patrignani, Professor at the University of Bologna, andNational Institute of Nuclear Physicswith whom he cooperates, will be presented to the participants Tools With which they observe the world, such as elementary particles. Another goal would be to explain how Physics can get interesting Even at school, “it’s less abstract,” explains Patrigani.
