Bringing science to life means turning the Parlamentarium into a science lab just for a day. Our team tackles the security and logistical challenges to bring 30 young researchers and their kit from across Europe to Brussels. They bus 1 200 schoolchildren in to meet the researchers, see what they have discovered and have a go at the experiments. The team also manages press relations, photo and video coverage as well as promotion via local press and social media.
3 100 people attend the event. They get to check out a robot, explore the link between food and Alzheimer's, see how to become a human milk scientist, eat molecular ice-cream, build a satellite and much more. The 30 young researchers are all funded by the EU's Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions which, by financing young scientists, help ensure the future of EU research.
