Insights into the world of microbes: CMESS joins European Researchers’ Nights 2022

CMESS researchers are part of this year’s European Researchers’ Night (ERN) that is taking place on Friday, September 30. From 3pm until midnight visitors may gain insights into the “world of microbes” at our two neighbouring stands. The ERN takes place in the building of the University of Applied Arts at Vordere Zollamtsstraße 7 (1030 Vienna).

With a quiz, a plush microbe sorting wall, a pH value test station and colourful petri dishes the CMESS stands offer various opportunities for visitors to interactively engage with our research and acquire knowledge on the diversity, functions, and habitats of microbes. Researchers on pre and post doctoral level from nearly all CMESS divisions have developed and created the stands in cooperation with Open Science, a non-profit association organising science communication events and projects.
