The Festival of Research is ONLINE

On Wednesday 28 April 2021 Aarhus University will be inviting the public to join the online version of the Festival of Research. We will bring the research into your home with a whole range of online speed lectures, video shows and fun activities. Experience live speed lectures: from a visit to the coldest place in the universe to homicide from the perspective of a medical examiner, beetle hamburgers as our future meal, music as a means to soothe sleep disturbance, and the mental health among pupils during the corona pandemic.

Try do-it-yourself chemistry experiments with ‘Kemishow’, take a journey into the darkness in the zombie land ‘Haunted House’ – and visit the basement at the Steno Museum to learn about the history of epidemics.

We will be offering a variety of activities for the general public to attend, including a broad presentation of research areas from hard-core science to health science, arts and social studies. There will be activities for everybody!

This website will be regularly updated.
