The Researchers’ Night is an event promoted and financed by the European Commission under its Seventh Framework Programme and by local Foundations.
It takes place every year (since 2006) on the last Friday of September simultaneously in hundreds of European cities (in Piedmont, from 3 in 2006 to 8 in 2011).
2012 will be the 7th edition of the Researchers’ Night in Torino and Piedmont. This year will cover also another region: the Aosta Valley.
Dr. Joanne Tippett launched Ketso as a social enterprise emanating from her research into community planning and ecological design at the University of Manchester. Ketso is a colourful, hands-on toolkit for creative engagement. This re-useable toolkit enables people with differing levels of confidence and ability to engage with each other and share ideas.
Dr. Tippett’s development of Ketso was driven by one clear aim: to enable all voices to be heard in a stimulating and creative dialogue.
