MTA SZTAKI joins Researchers’ Night

Last Friday night in September is dedicated again to curiosity for the sciences: Researchers’ Night – supported by the EU – is a popular pan-European event giving the opportunity to meet science and have a glimpse behind the scenes through “fun” activities. It also aims at showing the public, and mainly young people the advantages of pursuing a research career. As more and more organizations have joined this event since it started in 2005, this September nearly sixty institutes, laboratories and museums welcome visitors in Hungary.

Tempus Public Foundation, collaborating with several partners, helps to make the scientific interactive programs available in many points of the country. In 2011 nearly 55,000 visitors attended Researchers’ Night programs offered by 55 institutes in 26 cities.

This year MTA SZTAKI also joins the event and welcome visitors on 28 September to introduce its most outstanding developments in informatics and automated control systems. For the detailed program please visit our website and remember: this is not the night of boring lectures, but the night of fascinating innovations – the robot laboratory, the secrets behind VirCA (the 3D Virtual Collaborative Arena) and LIDAR laser scanner will all come to your arm’s reach.
