36 countries, 300 cities – among them Athens, Thessaloniki, Volos, Patras and Heraklion – and a team of leading scientific and educational institutions and organisations invite you to take part in the greatest European-wide celebration of science and research, including a series of events which offer us the opportunity to meet researchers and find out more about their work and contribution to society.
In Greece, we join forces with CERTH (The Centre for Research & Technology Hellas) as the co-ordinator of the event, the National Centre for Scientific Research 'Demokritos', the Science Centre and Technology Museum 'NOESIS', the University of Patras, the Foundation of Research & Technology Hellas (FORTH) and the University of Thessaly, we invite you on a journey into the unknown world of the researcher, exploring their ways and places of work.
The programme of activities includes a series of lectures, discussions, presentations, interactive games, screenings and scientific and cultural activities including The Street Value of Science, which brings together Professor Athanasios Konstantopoulos, EKETA, and Nikos Dounoussis and the Backbone (Nick & the Backbone) in a fascinating dialogue between science, technology and music.
Admission is free.

About Researchers' Night
Researchers’ Night is a European Commission programme initiated in 2005, which, having since gained its place amongst the most important initiatives to promote science, is celebrated simultaneously in all participating cities, on the last Friday of every September. The activity is part of the People (Marie Curie Actions) programme under auspices of the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme.
