Join us for European Researchers’ Night on September 30th!
Reserve the last Friday in September for the European Researchers’ Night, which will take place this year in 25 European countries, including Croatia! Visitors will have the opportunity to participate in numerous exciting experiments, interactive workshops, games, educational exhibitions, and lectures in the five largest Croatian coastal cities of the Mediterranean part of Croatia: Split, Rijeka, Pula, Zadar, and Dubrovnik.
Researchers will present the latest scientific discoveries understandably and entertainingly, bring their work closer to the public, and show science’s impact on our daily lives.
The main objective of this project is to reconnect science with society by bringing research and researchers closer to the public, boosting public recognition of science and research education, and building trust and understanding of science and its impact on the blue society in the region.
All content is free and open to all interested parties and will take place on Friday, 30th of September 2022, from 17:00 to 22:00 at the following locations:
Split: Marmontova ulica
Pula: Studentski trg i Fakultet ekonomije i turizma (No. 50)

Join us and let us sail, calculate, design, heal, draw, recycle… LET US EXPLORE together!
