Who actually decides what you eat? You yourself? And do you want to know how often your neighbours eat chocolate, fruit, or pizza? You can find out answers to these and other questions during the European Researchers’ Night 2021, organized with a European subsidy by the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health (AJSPH). The aim of this Night is to bring researchers closer to a broad public. Two activities will be available to visitors: De Grote Groninger Eetquiz (‘The Great Groningen Food Quiz’) and Schep maar op! (‘Dish it out!’).
