ING Participates in the Macaronesia's Researchers' Night

MacaroNight is part of the "European Researchers Night" project financed by Marie Curie Sklodowska actions. The Night takes place the last Friday of every September and it aims to disseminate European scientific culture and attract future generations to take up a scientific career. The MacaroNight project is a milestone for the European Researchers Nights, being the first project to bring together the Macaronesian archipelago in one single night where we will share and show our common heritage, culture and past, thus paving the way for a future full of Macaronesian researchers.

On 27th September, 2019 ING participates in MacaroNight, broadcasting live from the Isaac Newton Telescope right at the beginning of the astronomical observations. Cecilia Fariña, ING support astronomer, is responsible for introducing the telescope and describing the research it is involved in.
