The call for applications is open until 12 January 2021

The European Researchers' Night is a Europe-wide public event funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA).

It brings researchers closer to the public to showcase the diversity of science and its impact on citizens’ daily lives, and to stimulate interest in research careers, especially amongst young people.

The European Researchers' Night takes place every year, typically on the last Friday of September. For this call, it will be on 24 September 2021, except for countries that for strong cultural reasons would be prevented from organising any action addressing the public at large on that date.

Who can apply?

European Researchers’ Night grants may be awarded to any legal entity, established in an EU Member State or Associated Country.

What type of activity can get funding?

Any activity or event that boosts public awareness of the positive role of research in society – particularly among young people – is eligible for funding. These activities may include hands-on experiments, science shows, debates, workshops for children, science slams, etc.

The total budget for the 2021 edition of the European Researchers’ Night is €8 million.
