The event is sponsored by the European Commission and coordinated by the Research Promotion Foundation.
Researchers’ Night is a Europe-wide event bringing together the public at large and researchers once a year on the fourth Friday of September. The main purpose is to enhance the public image of research and the important role it plays in society, whilst at the same time encouraging young children to pursue careers in research. During the Researchers' Night you will have the chance to discover research facilities that are usually not open to the public (laboratories, research centres, museum collections), to use the most recent technologies and instruments with the guidance of scientists, to participate in experiments, competitions and quizzes, to watch demonstrations and simulations, to exchange ideas and to party with the researchers. For one night, everyone can be a scientist. Similar events will be held simultaneously in all European countries.
This year’s event will be held on Friday, 27 September 2013, at the Evagoras & Kathleen Lanitis Foundation, in Limassol, from 18:00 to 24:00.
The entrance is free, and families and children are all welcome.
