Explorathon 2020

Take part in Explorathon’20

This November, do you want to share your research in a pan-European event?

European Researchers’ Night, known as Explorathon in Scotland, is a celebration of research that takes place in over 300 cities in Europe each year.  Explorathon events are dedicated to bringing researchers closer to the public. They showcase the diversity of research happening in Scotland and highlight the impact it has on our daily lives.

In 2019, we engaged with 22,000 people across Scotland through our events and activities in science centres, community spaces, and shopping centres.  This year will of course look very different as we explore new modes of delivery in light of COVID-19.  From virtual workshops and tours to Q&As, films, and hyper local events this is a chance to get creative! By taking events online, this is also an opportunity to involve partners and collaborators from across Europe and the world. We’d love to hear your ideas.

If you’re interested in being involved with Explorathon 2020 register here. Please note that registering your interest does not commit you to anything.

The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 31st July 2020
