Science in the City

29 September 2017

This year’s 6th edition of Science in the City — European Researchers’ Night saw a new layout and a host of innovative activities. On Friday 29 September 2017 science and the arts transformed Republic Street as visitors of all ages explored the highly interactive activities. Attractions included the usual health and dental checks, child-friendly experiments, shows and games, as well as totally new activities that found their inspiration in ongoing research projects here in Malta, such as Light Pushes Stuff, AR Art, Holograms and so much more.

Researchers who have benefitted from EU funds to further their career, were present at the EU Corner outside the MEUSAC building. The foyer offered an information spot and a quiz about the EU’s space policy. Visitors were invited to go right up to the roof to join the Institute of Space Sciences and Astronomy (ISSA) in the Kids in Orbit activity.

Science in the City is part of the EU-wide celebration, European Researchers’ Night. It is funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions of the Horizon 2020 Programme of the EU, and a number of corporate sponsors. It is recognised as a Festival by Europe for Festivals and Festivals for Europe (EFFE).
