IRBLleida organises 20 workshops, 5 talks and 4 guided tours at the 'Research Night' 2022

Registration is required for all activities through the website

On Friday 23rd September a new edition of the Research Night will take place at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine of Lleida (IRBLleida). In this edition, the Institute has prepared 20 workshops, 5 informative talks and 4 guided tours in the centre, which will take place throughout the week, although most of them will be on Friday 23rd from 17.00 to 21.00 hours. To attend any of the activities, everyone must register through the website in order to meet the limited capacity.

Activities will start on Monday 19 September with a guided tour of the centre and a talk on why research rare diseases. The guided tours will be repeated until Thursday at different times. There will also be talks by professionals from the centre on why kidneys fail, what animals contribute to science or the use of flies to study cancer.

On Friday 23rd in the morning there will be a workshop at the CREBA centre, in Torrelameu, and in the afternoon, simultaneously, there will be 19 scientific workshops aimed at different audiences, from children to adults. Workshops on the construction of DNA, how we sleep and our brain, a microscope made with LEGO pieces, among others. We will also have a planetarium and the collaboration of the Joan Oró Foundation, which will give a talk on the occasion of the celebration of Oró Year 2023.

This 2022 edition of Research Night at IRBLleida is possible thanks to the support of the 'la Caixa' Foundation, the Diputació de Lleida and the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) of the Ministry of Science and Innovation. Lleida City Council is also collaborating in the organisation of the event.

The European Research Night is held every year on the last Friday of September in more than 300 cities in 30 countries across Europe. This year, 2022, it will take place on 30 September, but the IRBLleida has brought the event forward by one week so that it does not coincide with Lleida's local festival. Its aim is to bring research, innovation and its protagonists, the scientists, closer to the citizens in a fun way. Thus, all kinds of public, from schools, families and children to young people or adults of all ages, will be able to learn about and participate in the science of their territory through different activities such as workshops, talks, shows, experiments, astronomical observations and games.

This activity is possible thanks to the collaboration of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology of the Ministry of Science and Innovation.

The Institute of Biomedical Research of Lleida is organising talks and guided tours at the centre from 19 to 23 September and several workshops on Friday 23 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m
