„WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER” WITHIN THE ERC= SCIENCE² PROJECT.
Public space activities.
6-7 May 2017, from 10 AM to 4 PM
After last year’s success of the food theme events, EXPERYMENT designed new activities – now dealing with longevity research.
Why men die quicker but women are sicker?
How to add “life to years” as well as “years to life”?
How your immune system and air pollution affect how long you will live?
You will find the answers during ERC = Science² event in the heart of Gdynia.
During two days’ event in Gdynia Infobox, EXPERYMENT’s educators will show the information to public on current and most cutting-edge ERC-funded longevity research on pop-up stand. We will put a spotlight on leading researchers who are helping to unravel the mysteries behind the ageing process and providing direction on how we can alleviate some of the associated problems.
The interactive workshops and science busking will be accompanying the pop-up stand. City dwellers and tourists will explore the aging of the brain and ways how to improve our brain activity. Participants will be invited to take part in brain training puzzles, mnemonics games, board games and concentration exercises. A weight gain simulator and glasses that weaken one’s vision will be available to simulate how it feels to get older.
European Research Council (ERC) is the first pan-European funding body supporting the best frontier research in Europe. The ERC aims to contribute to Europe’s scientific excellence by supporting the very best scientists and their ambitious research projects in any field. ERC=Science2 is a Europe-wide communications campaign which uses popular scientific themes such as ‘cities of the future’ and ‘food’ to tell stories about the breakthrough science funded by the European Research Council and the potential impact it can have on our lives.
This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 672302).
