“European Researchers Night" is an annual event showcasing the value of publicly funded research and seeking to inspire a new generation of researchers. The EU is promoting this event around the world under Horizon 2020.
This multi-event aims to increase awareness of research and innovation activities, with a view to supporting the public recognition of researchers, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers' work on citizen’s daily life, and encouraging young people to embark on research careers. This year more than 40 events in 25 venues will be virtually carried out in Israel. Thousands of young researchers, girl and boys will attend
The importance of public funding is well known in Israel, where the EU has been a key partner in supporting the expansion of Israel's research and innovation sector for almost 25 years. In addition to funding, we support the linkages between European and Israeli researchers, markets and ideas. This cooperation is a great legacy to share with coming generations.
