H2020: European Researchers’ Night


What it is:

This Horizon-2020 scheme provides funding for a “Researchers’ Night” that’s been devised to shine a spotlight on researchers around the EU. In their words:

The European Researchers’ Night (NIGHT), and funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, is a Europe-wide public event to enhance researchers’ public recognition, and to stimulate interest in research careers, especially amongst young people.

“The European Researchers’ Night aims to bring researchers to the general public and to increase awareness of research and innovation activities, with a view to supporting the public recognition of researchers, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers’ work on citizen’s daily life, and encouraging young people to embark on scientific careers.”

As far as I could tell, the funding is 100% funding (not match funded) for about €70-80k per event for each organisation that applies.

Who it’s for:

Because this does not seem ideally relevant to most of our readers, I won’t go into too much detail. This seems especially relevant to people who are able to organise and promote events in partnership with research institutions. Very detailed information is available here.


The deadline is very soon! You’ll need to get your applications in within the next few days, by March 4th. The competition page with all the documents is here.
