Distilled fun and viral colors – SciArt (Brussels, BE)

Science can be so much more than just late nights in the lab and long hours writing up your results. And scientists are anything but boring – to kick-off the festival we have three very creative people who will take you on a fun and educational trip through science and art.

Nature – the ultimate designer (Brussels, BE)

How does neuroscience inspire artists? How do artists collaborate with neuroscientists to create mesmerizing and thought-provoking art installations which not only entertain, but also educate? In this event, we will hear about the two-way inspirational avenue between artists and scientists.

The sound (and images) of science (Brussels, BE)

Our senses are what make our lives interesting. How can sound and video be used to bring out the fascinating results of young scientists in a novel way? How can scientific story-telling give us hope for the influence of media and show us the human side of science and positive stories among the general media “doom and gloom reporting”? How can we use touch and the sense of aesthetics to get people curious about science? This event is going to be all about this – how can we relate to science with all our senses.

Ecology across borders:
Embedding Ecology in Sustainable Development Goals (Lisbon, PT)

The overarching theme of this conference, Embedding Ecology in Sustainable Development Goals, is intended to promote discussions and interactions on how to integrate basic and applied ecological research, and their trans-disciplinarily impacts, for the effective implementation of the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Researchers and various stakeholders will have the opportunity to share outputs and innovative solutions in debates, round-tables and symposia, among others.

The meeting is open to all: students, researchers from the public and private sectors, and stakeholders involved in the fields of ecology and conservation, evolution, genetics, environmental sciences, climate change, agro-forestry, social-ecology, economy, managers, and related disciplines.

We invite you to be part of this creative and exciting congress, by contributing with your recent results, expertise, and ecological research in all areas of ecology, and also in other scientific areas on the interface. The congress will prove to be an excellent opportunity for discussion, exchange and transfer of knowledge, as well as helpful in improving your collaborative network.

Past

(Event will be in Bulgarian)

Science stand-up comedy (Sofia, BG)

Brace yourself for a scientific experiment prepared by Nevena Hristozova, founder of Scircle, with chemists FameLab finalists Nasko Stamenov and Boris Yanachkov. They will convince you that science can be just as funny as it is exciting. Expected side effects – stomach ache and facial muscle failure. Long-term collaterals – increased interest in communicating with scientists and drastic dip of uneasiness in the company of researchers, accompanied frequently with increased levels of curiosity. 

PS This event is particularly suitable for people without any scientific knowledge whatsoever.
