Dissemination to non-scientific community

Science is Wonderful!

Science is wonderful! It is a free exhibition that brings the world of science closer to the public. It brings together scientists from around the world to present 3 days full of science and recreation activities in one place.

This event represents the perfect occasion for schools, families, and youth can meet and talk with researchers, ask them questions, conduct their own experiments, play games, and watch a variety of online activities in different languages.

With a mounting success and a rising number of visitors, Science is Wonderful! has become the flagship event to highlight EU-funded research by showcasing MSCA researchers and their projects to the wider public.

In the 2019 exhibition, our ESRs Margherita Duca and Dania Martinez participated in this event with the project entitled “Unmasking pathogenic fungi” to shows how their Ph.D. projects impact our daily lives and, to inspire young visitors to embark on an exciting career in science!
