At the initiative of the European Commission, the doors of science and research organizations will be wide open to the general public for one day of the year in order to present us the profession and the life of scientists.

The project will bring together over 30 research institutions to raise awareness of research and innovation, related social and economic benefits, and career opportunities. More than 40,000 visitors from different target groups will participate in “night” activities across Slovenia.

The activities will include scientific festivals in the main markets of four cities, research days in six primary and secondary schools, more than 30 lectures and workshops in libraries, retirement homes, museums, … open doors in research institutions, scientific centres and cultural institutions.

Join us in Ljubljana, Murska Sobota, Novo mesto, Ajdovščina, Maribor, Celje, Postojna, Koper, Slovenj Gradec, Krško, Trbovlje, Bogenšperk, Pivka, Bistra, Polhov Gradec, Kranj, Ptuj, Nova Gorica and elsewhere.

Join us on Thursday, June 11th, 2020, in Ljubljana, in front of the Castle Tivoli, where we open the project and start the people’s experiment about the bleeding canker of horse chestnut, which effects and damages horse chestnut trees. The dissappearance of chestnut trees is changing our urban landscape, that is why we will, with the help of citizens, design a map of infected areas in Slovenia.
