[CANCELED] — Ig Nobel Award Tour Show 2020

Mar 30, 2020, from 18:00 until 20:00, EPFL, Forum Rolex

Due to event restrictions linked to the coronavirus, the Ig Nobel Award Tour Show 2020 at EPFL is canceled, which we greatly regret.

On Monday March 30, 2020, EPFL should have welcomed for the fifth time the Ig Nobel Award Tour Show, with Marc Abrahams and a line-up of Ig Nobel Prize winners, with the support of the NCCR MARVEL. 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.

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.
