European Researchers' Night 2019

Тhe European Researchers' Night is a mega event which takes place every year on the last Friday of September simultaneously in about 300 cities all over Europe with the aim of bringing science, research and technology closer to the public. The “Nit Europea de la Recerca 2019” in Barcelona took place on September 27, 2019.

Under the motto “Who is Who in European Science” several research centers including the Institute of Photonic Sciences - ICFO invited to the FabCafe for an entertaining evening include a podium discussion and exhibition on “Bridging STEM to STEAM: Why art can be more than a communication tool in science and technology”:

In this panel discussion, the two artists Carolin Vogler (fashion designer) and Reiko Yamada (composer/ sound artists), who are currently collaborating with two research centres in Barcelona, discussed with two scientists, Giuseppe Lo Presti (postdoctoral researcher at ICFO) and Luciano Di Croce (group leader at CRG), their experiences in interdisciplinary projects and how art can contribute more to science by collaborations from the offset in the navigation of the scientific unknown, resulting in unexpected outcomes.
