The European Researchers' Night, funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA), is a Europe-wide public event to bring researchers closer to the general 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 the month of September. For this call it will be on 25 September 2020, except for countries which for strong cultural reasons would be prevented from organising any action addressing the public at large on such a 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 has increased to 8 million euros for the 2020 edition of the European Researchers’ Night.

Applications should be sent by 9 January 2020. All the information to apply can be found on the Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal.

Potential applicants can find more information and ask questions on the information day page.
