European Researchers' Night 2018

"Knowledge is Night!" is the motto of the third Researchers’ Night in the KielRegion on September 28, 2018. The European Commission's confirmation of the funding for the years 2018 and 2019 has just arrived. Each year, on the last Friday in September, the public will be treated to interactive experiments, laboratory tours, workshops, exhibitions, art activities and lectures about current research throughout Europe.

In 2018, more than 40 institutions from science and industry will present their research results in the state capital Kiel until late into the night. As in previous years, there will be more than 100 activities on offer for all ages. In 2019, the research institutions involved will pack bags with experiments and visit the surrounding cities of Eckernförde, Plön, Preetz and Rendsburg in addition to Kiel. Coinciding with the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, the State Office for the Preservation of Historical Monuments, the State Library and the Kunsthalle Kiel (the Kiel art museum) will, among others, also take part in the Researchers’ Night for the first time. Another novelty is the science program for school classes in the morning. Minister-President Daniel Günther has agreed to be the patron of the Researchers’ Night KielRegion.
