As in the previous years, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy many fun and educational activities during the European Researchers Night, such as interactive experiments, lectures, and games, as well as science party at the finish of the night.

Researcher’s Night was initiated in 2005, under the European Union FP7 programme and is organised each last Friday in September, aiming to promote science and research, science careers, as well as to raise awareness on influence of research on our every day lives.

Since its start, Researchers Night is marked in more cities in Europe each year, while in 2015, the event was held in over 280 cities of 30 European states.

Since 2014 “Researchers Night” became “European Researchers Night” under the Horizon 2020 programme.
