The Cyprus Computer Society (CCS) will participate at the Researcher's Night event that will take place on 28 September 2018 in Limassol, Cyprus. The “Researcher’s Night” is an event organized by the Research Promotion Foundation (RPF) in collaboration with academic and research institutions as well as other organisations in Cyprus. The event is an initiative of the European Commission and takes place simultaneously in almost all European countries. The theme for 2018 is "Human Evolution" and is focused on cultural heritage.
CCS will participate with the activity "The Future is here".
Activity Description: Terms like new technologies, smart devices, robotics, automations, coding and cybersecurity are part of our daily life. All of us and everything is connected on the internet. How well do we understand the challenges of today, how well prepared are we and what does the future hold? Together we will “pick” locks, we will write code for games and interact with robots. Activities where adults and children will need to collaborate to understand today.We will then realize that all these will become the cultural heritage that we are creating today and we will transfer to the next generations. Because now is already past and the future is here.
Those joining the event will have the opportunity to enjoy a creative night-time event dedicated to science and research, through experiments, games, competitions and music. Audiences of different ages will have the opportunity to meet up with Cypriot researchers and see their work, in a festive, friendly atmosphere. In each stand researchers will present their work and inform the public about the role and importance of research in the modern world as well as the practical applications of their research results in everyday life. At the same time, participants will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on experiments and become researchers for one night!
The “Researchers' Night 2018” in Cyprus is funded by the European Commission under the “Horizon 2020” Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (Project no. 818355).
