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 Sweden, activities will be organised across the country and online under the name ForskarFredag (Researchers’ Friday) coordinated by the Swedish nonprofit organisation Vetenskap & Allmänhet

Open to schools and individuals from all of over Sweden. Please register at Vetenskapens hus’ website to receive the zoom-link.

SciLifeLab will participate in Researcher’s night as part of Vetenskapens Hus program, with a set of lectures orchestrated by the Public Engagement Committee. We invite participants from schools all over Sweden to tune in to interesting lectures by our researchers. The lectures are given in English, are 15 minutes long and are followed by the opportunity for discussion with the researcher for another 15 minutes. They cover varying topics such as how spaceflight affect astronauts’ bodies and how different microscopical techniques can be used to study the cellular world.
