2021 European Researchers’ Night
How can Science contribute to the knowledge about the causes and effects of climate change and to climate neutrality by 2050?
The European Researchers’ Night is an initiative funded by the European Commission, through Marie Curie Actions, aiming to celebrate Science and reduce the gap between researchers and citizens. The European Researchers’ Night translates into a series of activities happening throughout the year culminating in a night of celebration of Science, taking place in several European cities.
The European Researchers’ Night 2021 (ERN2021) will take place on 24th September across Europe. The consortium’s activities, such as lectures, workshops, among others, under the theme “Climate Science“, will take place from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., in a hybrid format, i.e., with reduced face-to-face activities and a parallel programme fully online.
INESC-ID will participate in the following activities:
- “Understanding the risks is key to preparedness.” | Game, Apps and Challenges
In this game we will help you understand warnings and how to be prepared and respond in case of earthquake and tsunami.
Knowing the risks is essential to being prepared. In this game you will learn to know the alerts and what to do to be prepared and respond in case of earthquake and tsunami. It is intended to make the population aware of natural risks, namely seismic and tsunami risks, in order to increase the resilience of communities. Educating and informing about risk prevention and mitigation is essential for promoting a risk culture.
Researcher: Mónica Amaral Ferreira
Thematic area: Architecture, Art and Design, Natural and Environmental Sciences, Technology
- “Do you know how satellites help to know how the weather’s like?” | Quizzes
The activity presents some of the methods used to assess the Earth’s climate based on satellite technology, and challenges the visitor to answer a quiz to test their knowledge.
Organised by: INESC-ID
Researcher: Rui Policarpo Duarte
Thematic area: Technology.
