About the Science Festival

Vision

The Science Festival aims to communicate science to schools and the general public in an easily accessible and stimulating way, as well as providing a meeting place for the research community. The goal is to promote a positive attitude to science and research, and to encourage higher study.

We provide a broad programme that gives researchers and experts from widely differing disciplines the opportunity to meet the public and school children in traditional and alternative settings and under varying forms.

What we do

During the festival you will find everything from workshops, lectures, private shows, music, theatre, debates, exhibitions and seminars to meetings of researchers. The content spans all disciplines, from social science and the humanities to natural science and technology.

The Science Festival is divided into three branches, the public programme, the school programme and the specialist programme. There is something for everyone during the festival.

How we do it

The Science Festival constantly strives to find new ways to communicate science. We aim to reach groups that are not familiar with research. We collaborate with embassies and cultural organizations to showcase the cutting edge of international research as well as to exchange ideas and concepts about how to communicate science.
