Welcome to European Researchers' Night on 29 September 2017!

Come and challenge scientists at European Researchers' Night!

Do you want to learn more about the human body or the brain? How we learn, interact and develop? Are you interested in animals and plants or the forces governing the universe from nuclei to galaxies? Is chemistry and the development of new materials and technologies more to your liking? Or do you prefer the arts? At the Researchers’ Night events at the University of Jyväskylä there’s something for everyone! Join us and point your questions to the real experts!

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. 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. European Researchers’ Night opens doors to the places where scientists work, and also brings research to unusual places.

Check out the programme for the event. Learn how we can study species evolution through Pokémon, or how our world works from the subatomic scale all the way to the vast astronomic dimensions. See some of the latest advances in nanotechnology and listen about black holes and the discovery of gravitational waves. You can find out how Finnish science drives the creation of new materials and the development of renewable energy and fuel solutions.

Research conducted at the University of Jyväskylä is diverse and of high profile. Come and challenge scientists with your questions, join the workshops and investigate their state-of-the art science in the Researchers’ Night!

European Researchers’ Night is financed by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions.

The event is part of the Finland 100 programme in 2017.
