Aiming to highlight the significant role of research, science and innovation in our daily lives, Cyprus is participating for the 11th consecutive year in the celebrations of the European Researchers’ Night along with other 300 European countries around the world.

Taking place on September 29 at Cyprus’ International Fair, the event is organised by Research Promotion Foundation under the theme Join the Research Cult and will feature a wide range of activities for children, families and science-lovers.

Among the highlights of the event is the Dig it from sand, build it from Lego activity presented by The Cyprus Institute, aiming to teach children how an archaeological excavation works while also giving children the opportunity to handle archaeological objects and bones.
