The Catalan European Researchers’ Night (#NitRecerCat) project consists of a two-year proposal for 2022 and 2023, focused on two main activities to be conducted throughout the Catalan territory: the European Researchers’ Night (ERN) and Researchers at Schools (R@S).

European Researchers’ Night (ERN)

The well-known ERN will be held on September 30th 2022 and 29th 2023. During these two years, eight different partners will bring research and researchers closer to more than 30,000 people. The Catalan European Researchers’ Night (Nit Europea de la Recerca: “La Recerca va a l’Escola”) will organise the following events:

  • La Nit Catalana de la Recerca. On Friday morning, researchers will visit some schools to showcase their research and vice versa.
  • Ensopega’t amb la Recerca. The main activity of Friday evening/night . 'Women in Science', an exhibition based on the "Científiques Catalanes 2.0" will be shown in all the locations and online venues.
  • On Saturday morning, research will be found in everyday locations, such as markets, museums, malls, etc.

Submit your activity or presentation for the Catalan Research Night to be held from September 24th to October 2nd, in Barcelona. Among all the proposals, we will select those that are of an informative nature and we will distribute them among the available venues to build the program of the event.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal to the ERN, you must fill in this form by 26 June 2022.

Researchers at Schools (R@S)

As part of ERN, the present proposal also includes the Researchers at Schools (R@S), which adds a much better and longer interaction of pupils with the research from the Catalan institutions.

15 schools (and near 4,000 students) will become #NitEduCat Schools, with two years of stable collaboration between a team of researchers and the schools (primary and secondary). They will focus on making the general public aware of the present mission-oriented program of the European Commission (EU), mainly on the idea of how researchers can help change the world (Researchers for Change).

Events to be held:

  • #NitEduCat Schools. Going beyond single dissemination activities, this part of the project aims to develop 15- medium-long-term projects that promote stable collaboration between a team of researchers and primary/secondary schools.
  • Researchers visiting schools. During the whole year, many activities will be addressed to students.

Total Funding

300.000 €

This project is co-funded by the European Union’s research and innovation programme Horizon Europe, under the project NitRecercat (101061189).
