Researchers' Night is an event bringing together the general public and researchers. It is organised every year on the last Friday of September all over Europe.
The main objective is to show scientists and science in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and to raise awareness of the work of researchers and their contribution to society. Researchers' Night offers the opportunity to discover research facilities that are usually not open to public, such as laboratories and research centres, use the most recent technologies and instruments with the guidance of scientists, participate in experiments, competitions and quizzes, watch demonstrations and simulations, exchange ideas and party with the researchers.
Researchers' Night 2014 takes place on 26 September in 320 cities all over Europe.
