Researchers’ Night on September 29

Printer-friendly versionPDF version


Just like in other countries of Europe, in Hungary too researchers present themselves every year on the last Friday of September. At the same time, we can become familiar with the process of their solving the mysteries of “life, universe and everything”. Visitors have the opportunity to see special places that cannot be visited at other times, and they can get acquainted with interesting people who bring them nearer to the curiosities and latest developments of science. Aim of the event is to make academic career attractive for young people, and to change favorably general opinion about researchers, which is frequently based on stereotypes.

All programs are free for visitors!!
