"SHARP stands for Sharing Researchers’ Passions and is the name of the first European Researchers’ Night in Umbria, a region in the centre of Italy, a long night with researchers that will take place on the 27th of September 2013. Locations for the event will be the three Umbria main cities: Perugia, Terni and Foligno, where departments of the 700 year old University and public and private research centres are located.
Piazzas, streets, characteristic corners and unusual location will be the backdrop to meet researchers. With a curious public entering into the spirit of original and lively performances will be easy to bridge the gap that many times separates the researchers’ world and the general public.
SHARP activities will engage the public to identify shared passions, attitudes, expectations and way of thinking they have in common with the researchers. 24 different activities arranged in 39 events proposed during the Night will be inspired by passions for music, sport, arts, cooking, tv, movies, games. Events will help to present the researchers' work in various cutting edge research fields.
SHARP night will present researchers as passionate people, with passions about the real world we all live in.
Passion is also a key for motivation and commitment, a relevant message that will be covered to youngster.
Passions are definitely a shared ground among humans. Sharing passion is a form of dialogue that helps to better recognize the researchers’ role."
