Europe in My Region is a European Union-wide campaign encouraging citizens to discover European projects near them. In 2017, four different initiatives – project openings, a photo contest, a project hunt and a blogging contest – invite the public to visit projects, share images and experiences via social media. Thousands of EU projects open their doors mainly in May, a project hunt is organised from 2 May to 14 June, and a photo contest and a blogging contest run from 2 May to 28 August.
In Padova we are trying to organize an open day to present to students and general public the various EU-funded research projects, among which the INFN contributes with a few, including AMVA4NewPhysics. For the time being, we have produced a couple of posters that describe the activities of the network. Below are a few pictures of the posters and bystanders and research personnel reading them.
