What is a researchers’ job like? What is happening in the field of science right now? You are welcome to find out!
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. European Researchers’ Night opens doors to the places where scientists work, and also brings research to unusual places. Over the course of the day and throughout the night, children, adolescents and adults can get to know more about science for example through workshops, meetings with researchers, lectures and laboratory visits — in year 2020 remotely via web-based programs. The last event took place on the last Friday of November. The next European Researchers’ Night was held in around 300 cities simultaneously across Europe on 27 November 2020.
European Researchers’ Night is financed by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions, and any organisation may apply for funding to organise the events.
In 2020 European Researchers’ Night in Finland was organised by the University of Jyväskylä, French institute in Finland, the University of Eastern Finland, and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.
This European Researchers’ Night project is funded by the European Commission under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions under contract number 954755.
