ARISTO fellows Anna Manukyan and Alexandre
Pedrinho, along with the whole group of Plant and Environmental
Biotechnology of University of Thessaly, participated in the activities
organized in Larissa, Greece in the frame of Researchers’ Night 2022 at 30
September 2022. The fellows explained to
young students and kids what is a researcher, why they came all the way from
Brazil and Armenia to do “experiments” and how soil microbes “might eat” or “might
get sick” by the pesticides we use in our crops.
ARISTO fellows, Kunyang Zhang and Eleftheria Bachtsevani participated in the Science Day “Fête de la science” which was held at Ecole
Centrale de Lyon on the 15th of October 2022. Fellows had the opportunity to
introduce the world of microorganisms to the general audience. Lots of visitors
including young children visited the bench of Environmental Microbial Genomic
group and learned about the significant contribution of microbes to environment
and how these microorganisms are affected by agrochemicals.
