This European initiative aims to provide space for the presentation of projects and initiatives planned in order to raise awareness among younger people about the relevance of research and innovation in Europe with a view to a more sustainable and inclusive future, but also about the fact that scientific careers can be decisive in finding solutions that minimize society's problems.
