European Researchers’ Night

The European Researchers’ Night is a Europe-wide public event, which displays the diversity of science and its impact on citizens’ daily lives in fun, inspiring ways.

This year, the event will take place in 29 countries on Friday 24 September 2021.

The European Researchers’ Night aims to:

bring research and researchers closer to the public

promote excellent research projects across Europe and beyond

increase the interest of young people in science and research careers

showcase the impact of researchers’ work on people’s daily lives

As part of the event, the ADAPT Centre will have a number of installations including Dr Data where you can learn the importance of data privacy, Debunked, a workshop where you learn to identify misleading information, or join our Citizens Think-In, a public discussion to consider whether the convenience of having a smart home outweighs privacy concerns.
