Abstract: On Thursday September 26 at 4 pm the inauguration of Science in the House opened at the Grand Master’s Palace, Valletta. A poster exhibition entitled “Science in the House” was inaugurated under the auspices of the Office of the Speaker at the House of Representatives in the Grand Master’s Palace, Valletta. The exhibit was organised by Dr. David Magri (University of Malta) on behalf of the consortium “Researchers’ Night – Science in the City” The researchers were greeted by the Deputy Speaker the Hon. Censu Galea in the presence of Project Coordinator for Science in the City and Chair of the Malta Chamber of Scientists Prof. Alex Felice, University of Malta Pro-Rector for Research & Innovation Prof. Richard Muscat, Chief Executive of the Research Trust (RIDT) Wilfred Kenely, and Members of Parliament. Following the opening speeches, the Deputy Speaker was taken for a tour of the posters. A set of 12 posters were consistent with the theme “Today’s Science, Tomorrow’s Jobs” and the slogan of the Research Trust “Brighter thinking, broader future”. Each poster showcase a particular research study, the team involved in the research, and the societal contribution the research may make our lives. The exhibition aims to provide a unique opportunity for Members of Parliament and the public to meet scientists and learn how the research is contributing to a better quality of life. The “Science in the House” exhibition will be open for public viewing tomorrow (today) during Science in the City from 6.00pm to 9.00pm and on the 5th October during Notte Bianca. During the week of the 30th September, the exhibition will be open for viewing by the parliamentarians. Science in the House is a forum for networking and cause for celebration involving Maltese research scientists, Representatives of the House and Members of Parliament. It is also a poster exhibition highlighting some of the exciting scientific research currently conducted in Malta, particularly at the University of Malta. The event encourages and supports the achievements of Malta’s early-stage research scientists, engineers and technologists - arguably the “creative engines” of future innovation and development in Malta. During the following week the exhibition is open for viewing by the parliamentarians and afterwards left on display in the Grand Master’s Palace over the Notte Bianca festival, thus allowing the general public including students, parents and tourists to be more aware of local research endeavors. The event was sponsored by the Malta Chamber of Scientists, the Research, Innovation & Development Trust (RIDT) and the University of Malta.
