Last Friday, September 24, the tenth edition of the European Researchers‘ Night took place, an event that every year brings together hundreds of people in different European cities with the aim of bringing science and the figure of the researcher closer to the society.
The Alcázar of Jerez de la Frontera was the place chosen in the province of Cádiz for the celebration of this event that counted with more than fifty scientific activities. Given the current situation and as a novelty in this edition, in addition to the corresponding face-to-face activities at the Alcázar, the program included virtual scientific workshops and micro-encounters. Altogether, in addition to the usual exhibitions and tasting, 12 face-to-face workshops and 16 virtual workshops were celebrated.
As usual, the Observatory of Pain participated in the event, although this time it did it online. So, some of the members of the observatory presented through a video the PainReApp project, an exercise program based on an M-health system to improve the lives of patients with chronic pain. The video was recordered by the organization and everyone can watch here.
Once again, Jerez linked science and society and, despite the restrictions of capacity and participation, the European Researchers‘ Night was such a success. We hope that the next edition will be held normally so that we can all celebrate together the science night.
