European Researchers’ Night in a nutshell

European Researchers’ Night is a science event that makes science and the work of scientists familiar to audiences all over Europe. It aims to answer people’s questions about science and research and to lead to new questions and answers. Over the course of the day and throughout the night, children, adolescents, adults, and older people can get to know more about science through workshops, meetings with researchers, lectures and laboratory visits. European Researchers’ Night opens doors to the places where scientists work, and also brings research to unusual places.

The event takes place annually on the last Friday of September. The next European Researchers’ Night will be held in around 300 cities simultaneously across Europe on 27 September 2019.

European Researchers’ Night is financed by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions (no 817987).
