"Night of Science" becomes the Festival of Science this year

March 31st, 2022

In 2022, the former "Night of Science" will start with a new name and new ideas. The receipt of the hot-off-the-press funding decision from the European Commission has secured the implementation of the popular event for this and next year. The Festival of Science was able to qualify for renewed funding alongside 47 projects from other European cities and regions. After the event could only take place on a small scale last year, the joy among the organizers and partners is now all the greater.

As in previous years, the IPN will again be present with a wide range of events relating to the teaching and learning of mathematics and science as well as topics from educational research.

The Festival of Science is a joint event of all scientific institutions in the KielRegion. Every year, more than 40 partners from science, business and administration take part in the activities around the topic of science and thereby convey the importance of research for our society to the general public. Exciting lectures, workshops and experiments awaken the spirit of research in young and old and thus set the course for the scientific future of the KielRegion.

 

Background info Festival of Science: Paris, Madrid, KielRegion:

The Festival of Science in the KielRegion is part of the "European Researchers' Night", a science event that has been held throughout Europe since 2005. Every year on the last Friday in September, scientists invite visitors to research, experiment and discover. The Night of Science in the Kiel region has regularly been a great success, attracting well over 10,000 visitors each year. The European Night of Science helps people, business and science in the region to get to know and appreciate each other better. That's why there are events for children from kindergarten age, schoolchildren, students and anyone interested in science. Visitors can meet researchers from their region, gain insights into their lives and work, and learn more about the importance of research for our immediate living environment.

The project is funded by the European Union.
