On September 27 and 28, 2018 the Research Promotion Foundation (RPF) organised the “Researcher’s Night”, an event organized in collaboration with academic and research institutions as well as other organisations in Cyprus. The event is an initiative of the European Commission and takes place simultaneously in almost all European countries. Those joining us at the Lanitis Carob Mill Complex in Limassol had the opportunity to enjoy a creative night-time event dedicated to science and research, through experiments, games, competitions and music. Audiences of different ages had the opportunity to meet up with Cypriot researchers and see their work, in a festive, friendly atmosphere. In each stand researchers presented their work and informed the public about the role and importance of research in the modern world as well as the practical applications of their research results in everyday life. At the same time, participants had the opportunity to engage in hands-on experiments and become researchers for one night! The European “Researchers' Night 2018” in Cyprus is funded by the European Commission under the “Horizon 2020” Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (Project no. 818355).
The Cyprus Computer Society participated with the Activity "The Future is Here" and amongst other presented its activities which included the Robotex Cyprus competition and its EU funded projects under Esrasmus+ Smart Women and Coding for Inclusion.
