The Researchers’ Night 2013 in Badajoz & Cáceres

The Researchers’ Night 2013 in Badajoz and Cáceres will take place in the respective campuses of the Universidad de Extremadura.

The activities proposed aim at discovering the research facilities available at this regional university for the general public, students, children, research centres and enterprises, as well as making the research professional career closer to society.
