Whether you are a PhD student or a professor, you have the opportunity to travel the country and give lectures on your research as part of the "Book a Researcher" scheme in week 17. For instance, you can visit a company, an association, a school or something else entirely. 

You can decide the content of your lecture and make your own decision on where you want to go in Denmark and when to hold your lecture during the Festival of Research.

In 2017, more than 500 lectures were booked as part of the "Book a Researcher" scheme, thanks to almost 300 voluntary researchers who gave their time and their knowledge to the people of Denmark for free.

"Book a Researcher" is an initiative presented as part of the Festival of Research, which gives everyone in Denmark the opportunity to receive a free visit from a researcher in week 17. The objective is to create communication between researchers and citizens. These lectures are booked by private individuals, libraries, associations, schools, companies, municipalities, etc. that are able to gather together an audience of at least 20 people. The applicants provide the premises, and the researcher him/herself agrees on the details with the applicant as soon as the secretariat has put them in touch with one another.
