The European Researchers' Night is a Europe-wide public event, which displays the diversity of science and its impact on citizens' daily lives in fun, inspiring ways.

This year, the event will take place in 29 countries on Friday 24 September 2021.

The European Researchers' Night aims to

  • bring research and researchers closer to the public

  • promote excellent research projects across Europe and beyond

  • increase the interest of young people in science and research careers

  • showcase the impact of researchers’ work on people’s daily lives

In 2020, the European Researchers’ Night attracted over 2 million visitors in Europe and beyond.

Who is it for?

Children, young people and families will have the chance to meet researchers and discover research, science and innovation through a wide range of science shows, hands-on experiments, games, quizzes, competitions, exhibitions and digital activities.

Researchers: Get involved!

Are you a researcher passionate about outreach and communication on science and research? 

The European Researchers' Night is a unique opportunity to engage with citizens of all ages to raise awareness about your research and its impact on society and to put your outreach skills to practice.
