Night of Science, Geneva, July 9-10th
The Night of Science returned after 4 years of absence with the theme: And yet… which refers to the phrase attributed to Galileo “E pur si muove!” to address everything that seems counterintuitive in science.
The National Centre of Competence in Research Evolving language and the Swiss Centre for Affective Sciences (CISA) of the University of Geneva combined their strengths and organized various playful activities related to language and emotions.
Have you ever wondered what makes us human? Both centers are conducting research on vocal and gestural production in humans and non-human primates and are trying to solve this mystery.
Discover below our program.
