The Sant'Anna School is one of the main contributors to the event dedicated to the dissemination and dissemination of scientific knowledge

The 2022 edition of the European Researchers' Night (BRIGHT -Night) is scheduled for September 30. The event, that was established by the EU Commission in 2005 with the purpose of spreading the scientific knowledge, will see the Sant'Anna School among the Tuscan scientific and research entities that will open their doors and show the results of their researches.

Friday, September 30, researchers will be in the squares of 10 Tuscan towns and will animate a wide range of initiatives designed to communicate their researches to a non specialized audience with special attention to kids and young students that will be involved in events tailored for their age and scientific literacy level. Workshops, demonstrations, experiences, guided tours and science walks will take the audience on an exciting journey through the various dimensions of research.
