With a huge variety of activities, workshops and lectures for people of all ages, the night aims to open up the world of research and demonstrate how it influences our daily lives.


Brownies Challenge

The University of Huddersfield is giving you the chance to get your hands on this brownie fun badge, just by attending the Europeans Researchers' Night event.

The European Researchers' Night takes place every year all over Europe on the last Friday of September. In 2015, these popular science events took place on Friday 25 September in around 300 cities located in 24 European and neighbouring countries. The events gathered over 1.1 million visitors and over 18,000 researchers were involved in the activities.

Marie Sklodowska-Curie: an inspiration to follow this European Researchers' Night project is funded by the European Commission under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 722929.

This project has been funded by the EU under HORIZON 2020 in the framework of the Marie Sklodowska Curie actions.

The events are supported by the European Commission as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, which is an EU programme to boost European research careers.

To find out what is happening across the rest of the UK and Europe please visit the European Commission website.
