“Scienza a ore sei” | Happy hours and chats between researchers and citizens
This is the spirit of “Science at 6 o’clock“, the new series of science happy hours that will feature researchers and communicators from the University of Trento, MUSE-Museum of Science, Mach Foundation and Kessler Foundation, with the coordination of the Autonomous Province of Trento.
This year the initiative was organized by the four post-doc researchers winners of the call by the Autonomous Province of Trento entitled “The STAR communicators of science“. The six scheduled events will be held between March and June at the MUSE café, starting at 6 pm.
The aim is to provide a “horizontal” discussion space between citizens and researchers, which should go beyond the typical “conference” scheme in which the speaker gives a presentation and then answers questions from the audience.
In this case, a direct dialogue with the citizens will be stimulated immediately, eliminating barriers and distance (including physical ones) with the researchers. To underline the informal and relaxed nature of the initiative, all participants will be offered refreshments to be consumed during the meeting.
The meetings will revolve around topics of great relevance and interest, particularly in the local context of Trentino, with tangible impact on the day-to-day life of citizens.
