Welcome to the Blue Nights virtual platform!

This platform is dedicated to showcasing the activities of the BlueNIGHTS project.

In preparation for the Blue Nights, many activities (e.g. walking tours, guided tours, photo exhibitions) were organised during 2022 to draw attention to and raise awareness of ocean issues and marine research.

On 30 September 2022, these activities culminated in the European Researchers' Blue Nights that took place in 11 different cities on the Atlantic, Baltic, Black Sea and Mediterranean coasts, but also inland!

You can now watch many of these activities on this self-explanatory platform. In the Auditorium, you can find recordings of the different Blue Nights and visit our stands where you will find information on the different types of activities we have carried out. You can also experience exploring the Research Vessel Aranda, physically located in Finland, with the help of virtual reality! Our Poster Room and Network Lounge will help you explore and learn about our activities through an interactive format.

So what are you waiting for? Visit, explore, enjoy! ... And come back on 29 September 2023 to participate in the next edition of the BlueNights!
