The Researchers' Night is an event bringing together the public at large and researchers. It occurs annually on the fourth Friday of September all over Europe. Its main objective is to reveal scientists and science in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
The Researchers' Night offers the opportunity to discover research facilities that are usually not open to public (laboratories, research centres, museum collections, ...), use the most recent technologies and instruments with the guidance of scientists, participate in experiments, competitions and quizzes, watch demonstrations and simulations, exchange ideas and party with the researchers.

The symposium will address new forms of citizenship that are experimented with by people living in hybrid situations - i.e. not strictly within the norm - and that modify the outlines of juridical citizenship. Those forms of citizenship imply practical activities connected with existing schemes or milieus: what is at stake is the continuous invention of the democratic principle itself, i.e. the "right to have rights". Such practices assert and express a "right to the city" that is not immediately granted, featuring what the researchers call profane citizenship and also standing as a tool to analyse democratic ownership.
