On 27 and 28 November, face-to-face meetings with research return

Organized as a series of online initiatives due to the recent restrictions to control the spread of COVID-19, MEETmeTONIGHT, an event tied to the European Researchers’ Night taking place on 27 and 28 November in different cities of Lombardy, Campania, Veneto, and Lazio, will also be held this year.

Despite the remote nature of this ninth edition, participants will still have numerous opportunities to interact with researchers in real time, an element that has always distinguished this event, one of the most important for spreading the scientific culture among citizens of all ages. The programme is available at

The 2020 edition of MEETmeTONIGHT revolves around the concept of ‘future’, with the various initiatives grouped into five large thematic pillars reflecting the vocation of the numerous partners involved: Health, Humanities, Smart Cities, Sustainability, and Technology.

The organizers are supported by a group of satellite universities such as Università degli Studi di Brescia, the Brescia campus of Università Cattolica, Università LIUC in Castellanza, and Università di Cassino e del Lazio Meridionale, which brings the number of Italian cities involved in the initiative in various respects to 21 (Milan, Naples, Caserta, Padua, Brescia, Castellanza, Cremona, Edolo, Lecco, Lodi, Mantua, Monza, Sondrio, Avellino, Portici, Procida, Cassino, Gaeta, Frosinone, Ventotene, and Asiago).
