Researchers’ Night

Researchers’ Night

Researchers’ Night is a science event that makes science and the work of scientists familiar to the general public all over Europe. 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. Researchers’ Night opens doors to the places where scientists work, and also brings research to unusual places.

The event will be held simultaneously in around 300 cities across Europe on the last Friday of September. Researchers’ Night Tampere is organised jointly between Tampere University of Technology and the University of Tampere. The event is a part of the Finnish Researchers’ Night event series that received two-year funding from the EU research and innovation programme Horizon 2020. In Finland, European Researchers’ Night is organised by 12 universities and other parties in ten cities around the country.
