Be part of European Researchers' Night

All across Europe on the last Friday in September the EU celebrates research and researchers with huge public engagement events, writes Jamie Gallagher, Public Engagement Officer.

The University of Glasgow will join the party as we showcase our work to the wider community inviting people to get up close and hands on with our world leading research.


Explorathon: European Researchers' Night will be held in Glasgow on Friday 25 September 2015.

This year’s event will include a research ceildh, public lectures and a complete takeover of Glasgow Science Centre for the night with free entry to the public.  


The goal is to share our enthusiasm and our work. To show how relevant and exciting research can be. It is the chance for the people of Scotland to learn about the world leading research happening in our University.
