CLAIM participated at the Science is Wonderful! exclusive online exhibition
From 22 to 24 September, CLAIM participated in the Science Is Wonderful! exclusively online exhibition, which has an already established reputation as a major event that introduces the public to the science innovations. Organised as a part of the European Research and Innovation Days, which is the EU Commission’s annual event and is aiming to bring together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public to discuss and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe. Out of more than 300 applicants for the Science is Wonderful exhibit, CLAIM is proud to share that it was one of the 40 chosen to engage in the exposition.
During the three-day event, CLAIM presented live materials on various topics concerning marine pollution and its prevention. As the audience was divided in three main groups – stakeholders, citizens and children, the project targeted each one.

Thanks to the Science is Wonderful! organisation team, an excellent visualisation was created to fully stimulate a physical exhibition. CLAIM’s booth consisted of digital promotional material, such as brochures and posters, available to all the participants. The visual corner provided video materials and links to the project’s live presentations, which were available in both English and Greek languages. CLAIM participated in a science quiz with marine pollution related questions, such as: How many years does it take for a plastic bottle to decompose in the sea?
CLAIM is eager to reveal that the project had the opportunity to reach the majority of the event visitors, which were more than 10.000, where more than 5.000 were school pupils.
