Ig Nobel Award Tour Show 2020

Monday 30 March 2020 18.00 to 20.00, Forum Rolex

Research that makes you laugh, then think

There are events that mark time and the seasons. The coming to EPFL of the Ig Nobel Award Tour Show may be on its way to becoming one. On March 30, you will once again be able to discover research that makes you laugh, then think about it. On the menu this year, pizza, wine and football.

A great opportunity to see science from an original point of view, in a show that is both funny and inspiring, and an encouragement for scientists to think outside the box.

With the support of the NCCR MARVEL.

Every year, Marc Abrahams, father of the annual Ig Nobel ceremony and editor of Annals of Improbable Research, reminds us that every Swiss citizen indirectly wins the 2008 Ig Nobel Peace Prize for adoption of the legal principle of the dignity of plants.

The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that makes people laugh, and then think. The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative — and spur people's interest in science, medicine, and technology.
