The Pomeranian Researchers' Night, one of the regional partners of which is Gdynia Maritime University, has gained the recognition of the European Commission. Under a decision of 13 February 2024, Gdansk Medical Academy, the coordinator of the project, was granted funding for future editions of the project in the sum of nearly 1.2 million PLN, as part of the EU Horizon Europe research and innovation framework programme.

The implementation of the project will also be supported by the Municipal Office in Gdansk, Gdynia City Council, as well as the Marshall's Office of the Pomeranian Voivodeship.

The first-ever Pomeranian Researcher's Night was held on Friday 29 September.

The event included dozens of activities, including scientific shows, tours of laboratories, workshops, and lectures. There were also many quizzes and competitions with prizes.

For one night only, scientists stepped away from their daily tasks and ongoing research and opened up their workplaces to show that science is interesting, exciting, and open to everyone. Perhaps most importantly, it also proved that science is much more than heavy books with big words.

As part of the Pomeranian Scientists' Night, staff and students at Gdynia Maritime University organised the following workshops, lectures and presentations held both in the University's main building on Morska Street and in the Faculty of Navigation on John Paul II Avenue in the centre of Gdynia.

More than 400 people took part in the events planned by Gdynia Maritime University.
