Researchers Sandra Doval (PhD candidate) and Lucía Vaquero (senior researchers) participated in an educational and popularization event to celebrate European Researchers’ Night, organized by the Fundación para el Conocimiento madri+d. This event was planned as a competition and took place at the Fine Arts Circle, and its purpose was to inform high school students about some of the scientific projects that are carried out by researchers from the region of Madrid in the most entertaining way possible.
C3N’s researchers presented two projects that had been awarded with funding from the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions: the EMBRACE project and the SMART project. Thanks to the kindness of our collaborators from the Technische Universität Ilmenau (Germany), in addition to receiving the theoretical explanations, the teenagers were able to see a dry-electrode EEG cap in real life to better understand this technology. There were funny interactions with the participants and the event was nice and enriching.
