Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl


Aarhus University will be opening its doors to the general public on Thursday 26 April from 14:00-18:00 in and around Stakladen, and the theme of the event is FASCINATING RESEARCH. This is an opportunity for you and your fellow researchers to present your work to a popular audience.

Both seasoned researchers and junior research talents can get involved – either with a speed lecture or a stand. It is great fun to participate, and as a researcher you will have the opportunity to present your research field in a different manner than from peer to peer.

Quotes from researchers who have previously participated in the Festival of Research:

”The Festival of Research is an excellent opportunity to engage in dialogue with ordinary taxpaying Danes who are interested in that’s going on in the world of science. It’s challenging and entertaining to communicate research to all age groups with no special insight into scientific questions.”
Mogens Christensen, associate professor in chemistry/nanotechnology at AU

The Festival of Research is a cool opportunity to communicate your research to a very general audience – and a really good exercise in turning the nerdy area you work with into something alive and relevant from society’s perspective. You can also have the good luck to be asked unexpected questions which give you a new angle on your field.”
Annette Bruhn, marine ecologist at AU
