There’ll be research on show, music, drinks and a lively atmosphere. Our participation in European Researchers' Night is funded by the Natural History Museum, who have hosted this event successfully for several years across the UK. It's a Europe-wide initiative, in which thousands of researchers meet the public and share their work in a social setting.

We'd really love for you to be involved in sharing your research to a wide adult museum audience. Please read the information sheet, decide what you would like to do on the day, and then fill in the form. 

Deadline to register is Friday, 16 August, but if this will be a problem for you, please let us know.

This year’s theme is: Research in the City

More than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. On one hand, our cities face a range of tough challenges, from climate change, air and water pollution, and flooding, to deprivation, social inequalities and population health. On the other hand, cities are places of innovation and enterprise, art and culture, and science and technology; where great ideas and opportunities are found.

  • Is your research connected to Manchester? Are you doing your research in Manchester? Is your research about Manchester?
  • Is your research connected to cities? Are you doing research about the urban environment, urban spaces, places or people? Does your work respond to the challenges or opportunities that arise from urban living or urbanism?

If you have any questions or queries, please contact Anna Bunney, Engagement Manager, or Alex Bennett.
