If you happen to be in Thessaloniki during 14-17 of May 2015 you might be interested in visiting Helexpo Exhibition Center (building 7), and “Polyhoros Sports and Culture «WE»” in order to discover the science in everyday life. “Helexpo Exhibition Center ” and “Polyhoros Sports and Culture «WE»”, will be hosting the first Science and Innovation Festival in Thessaloniki and invite you to explore the sciences that surround you.
The Thessaloniki Science Festival is organized by the educational organization “Science Communication – SciCo”, the British Council, the Municipality of Thessaloniki, the TIF-HELEXPO, Polyhoros Sports and Culture «WE», and the General Secretariat for Research and Technology, in cooperation with the Union of Greek Physicists and many academics, research institutions and educational institutions.
The program is comprised by dozens of events, speeches but also workshops for children. It covers a range of different sciences such as sustainable development, biology, geology, environmental sciences, health sciences, history and philosophy of science, innovation and entrepreneurship, mathematics, computer science and digital technology, robotics, arts and science, physics and chemistry.
Perhaps for those of you who do not speak or understand Greek the festival will not be as rewarding but if science is one of your interests it would be an opportunity for networking with scientists from Greece. Of course, you will be able to communicate in English in any case.
