European Researchers’ Night 2020

European Researchers’ Night 2020

on October 27, 2020

Learn how research is fighting cancer, combatting diseases and viruses, stopping global warming, working for sustainable development, contributing to Artificial Intelligence-related findings, and tackling challenges for a better life. Meet researchers and discover the fascinating world of science in a fun and interactive environment – with family or on your own.

The European Researchers’ Night, funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, is a Europe-wide public event that brings researchers closer to the public. The European Researchers’ Night showcases the diversity of science and its impact on citizens’ daily lives, stimulating interest in research careers – particularly among young people. In 2019, it attracted 1.6 million visitors across more than 400 cities in Europe and beyond.

This year, children, young people and families will meet researchers and discover research, science and innovation through hands-on experiments, science shows, games, quizzes, competitions, exhibitions, and digital activities.

The event will take place in 29 countries on Friday 27 November 2020.

In Israel the event will take place on 3 December 2020.
