EXPLORATHON '18 and EXPLORATHON '19 - EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS' NIGHT SCOTLAND

Project description

Activities to promote research in Scotland

The EU-funded EXPLORATHON 18-19 project will organise European Researchers’ Nights across Scotland in 2018 and 2019. The aim is to bring research to the Scottish public and support a new dimension of collaboration with business and industry. Led by five major research-intensive universities, the objective of EXPLORATHON 18-19 is to build on careers and responsible research and innovation issues through a public-friendly message designed to engage audiences with research and provide an exciting experience. The project will perform multi-element activities to break down stereotypes about researchers’ work through cafe discussions, comedy, performances, and debates in public places (shopping centres and cinemas) and research environments (universities and industry). EXPLORATHON 18-19 will encourage young people to embark on scientific careers.
