Attracting young people to science and research
Promoting the understanding of research and scientific work to the public and especially to young people is essential for the identification of the connections between research and our daily life. The EU-funded LifeisScience project will focus on biotechnology and related disciplines with particular attention to food technology, waste management, renewable resources and health. The project is coordinated by the Austrian Centre of Industrial Biotechnology (acib) within the framework of the European Researchers’ Night in Austria, offering young people the opportunity to discover scientific content through lab visits, participation in experiments and open innovation science and discussions with scientists. Due to the unstable COVID-19 situation, most of the planned activities will be offered also virtually. The different activities will allow visitors to identify and understand connections between research and everyday life, encouraging their interest in science and research.
