Don’t miss the Researchers’ Night on Friday, 27 September 2013. In 300 cities all over Europe museums, botanic gardens, universities and other institutions will bring their scientists close to the public to showcase what do researchers really do and why does it matter for our daily lives. Behind-the scenes guided tours, interactive science shows, hands-on experiments and workshops will engage younger and older visitors in finding out how science works. This is an EU initiative aims at enabling people to discover science in a fun way and raising interest in research careers.

INQUIRE Partner Real Jardín Botánico Juan Carlos I will be also opening their doors to the public until the late hours. Scientists will run experiments and demonstrations related to Chemistry phenomena, water purification and how bacteria produce electricity. Visitors will also have the opportunity to go on a train ride and experience different parts of the garden.

If you are a European citizen and  you are interested in finding out how science impacts our lives or get inspired to follow a scientific career find here an event that may take place near you!

Also, if you are a scientific centre or museum/botanic garden and would like to find interesting ways to communicate scientific research have a look at the NHM, London Science Uncovered list of events
