The European Researchers’ Night takes place every year all over Europe and in neighbouring countries the last Friday of September. This year, the events will take place on Friday 29 September in over 300 cities.
The European Researchers’ Nights are events dedicated to popular science and fun learning. They are a unique opportunity to meet researchers, talk to them, and find out what they really do for society, in interactive and engaging ways. This can be through hands-on experiments, science shows, learning activities for children, guided visits of research labs, science quizzes, games, competitions with researchers and more.
The events are supported by the European Commission as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, which is an EU funding programme to boost the careers of researchers.
