European Researchers' Night

Hall of FameLab has been organised for European Researchers' Night, an outreach initiative during which European scientists explain their work to the public every year.

This year's theme is World Wild Webs: Our Interconnected Planet. It's been 50 years since the Internet revolutionised human connections, but it's not the only world wide web on our planet. We are part of a much bigger network and scientists around the world are working together to deepen our understanding of Earth's interconnected nature and our place in it.
