La European Research Night, to which TecnoCampus has joined this year, is a public event dedicated to the dissemination of science that is held every year in more than 300 cities in 30 European countries on the last Friday of September. Its aim is to bring research and its protagonists closer to the public of all ages and to make research and innovation known in a fun and flat way.
In this year's edition, framed under the motto "Research for change", which wants to convey the importance of the research of Catalan institutions and its impact on our day-to-day life, TecnoCampus participates with two proposals.
On the one hand, and coinciding with the fact that October 1st is the International Day of the Elderly, the Chair of Aging and Quality of Life drives the talk "How will you want to be taken care of when you grow up?". New scenarios beyond family care, to invite reflection on old age and care. Anyone interested in the topic, from the elderly, families, dependents, non-professional carers of the Maresme region can attend to learn about new ways of understanding the care of people and to promote and visualize Mataró as a city caregiver The talk will take place on September 30 in the Laia l'Arquera room of the TCM2 building, at 10.30 am. To attend, you must register at this link.
On the other hand, from the Narratives de la Resistència research group, a micro-chat is presented in virtual format that will be posted soon on the Research Night YouTube channel. The audiovisual clip Histórias del Punt. Recovering memory through the interactive documentary, proposes a reflection on memory and archive based on interactivity and the urban space as a metaphorical space of memory, to look for the memory spaces of the working class. From the audiovisual, we seek to work on the role of oral memory in labor history and in the configuration of the city. This reflection is shaped and made concrete in an interactive documentary about the history of textile workers in the city of Mataró.
These activities count on the collaboration of the Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología, of the Ministry of Science and Innovation.
