CHIC at the European Researchers’ Night in Indjija (Serbia)
IBISS, partner in CHIC Project worked on organizing the presentation regarding the results of our CHIC Project, though team member Jovana Petrovic directly participated in this manifestation.
On September 27th, 2019, Jovana Petrovic from University of Belgrade, Institute for Biological Research “Siniša Stanković“, National Institute of Republic of Serbia presented knowledge gained so far on the health-beneficial effects of Cichorium intybus and its possibilities to be used on an everyday basis.
People seemed very keen to get to know with facts how this plant that grows on meadows nearby, could exert useful effects as a tonic, coffee substitute, and prebiotic.
Since this manifestation is dedicated to the popularization of science making it interesting to children of school age, retired people, and overall families with children, this Researchers’ Night was a unique opportunity for people to get familiar with new breakthroughs in research that they could directly benefit from on.
The presentation of the Project took place at Indjija, the intersection city between Belgrade and Novi Sad.
