CERIC at ESOF2020 / Join our Live Science Talks @ the Science in the City Festival

02.09.2020 - 06.09.2020


Visit CERIC, or join us online, at the ERF-AISBL booth at the Science in the City Festival @ ESOF 2020 – Magazzino 28, Porto Vecchio, Trieste (Italy), from 2 to 6 September 2020.

As in every edition of the European Science Open Forum, the Science in the City Festival will address a public of all ages who is curious about science. The Festival is also a great way to experience how science engages, interacts, and builds bridges between researchers, delegates and the public.

CERIC will be contributing to the Festival in the booth of the ERF-AISBL (European Research Facilities Association), with a set of recorded and online/onsite live talks by some of the researchers who benefited from the open access to the CERIC laboratories and instruments, for research in all fields of materials, biomaterials and nanotechnology.


All live talks will also be accessible from the ERF exhibit hall at the Magazzino 28 of the Porto Vecchio in Trieste, in the building of the main Conference Hall, as well as remotely, via Zoom (direct link to the event HERE).

Come to visit us, or stay connected to listen to and interact with our scientists, who will introduce you to their research studies in the fields of environmental sciences, cultural heritage, batteries and energy materials.
