Join us at this year’s celebrations being held in nine cities all over Greece – Athens, Thessaloniki, Patras, Larissa, Corinth, Pylos, Rhodes, Heraklion and Rethymnon – under the slogan 'Science takes you everywhere', and discover what researchers really do and why it matters for our daily life!

In Greece, we join forces with the National Centre for Scientific Research 'Demokritos', the National Observatory of Athens, the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, the National Hellenic Research Foundation, the Athena-Research and Innovation Center in Information, Communication and Knowledge Technologies, the Foundation of the Hellenic World and SciCo, and invite you on a journey into the unknown world of the researcher to explore their ways and places of work.

Between 18.00 and midnight, you'll have the chance to meet researchers and scientists, learn about their work and and the important contribution they make to society, as well as get an insight into their daily lives and a taste of the magic of science.

From the observation of distant stars to a visual tour of the Greek seas and from the nucleus of an atom to the heart of a cell, this years Researchers' Night' really will take you everywhere!

About Researchers' Night

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