Science Popularisation Events

Researchers’ Night

Palacký University has been participating annually in this pan-European September event that aims to popularise science. The programme takes place at an interactive museum of science, Fort Science, at all individual faculties and the UP Botanical Garden. Visitors are allowed to explore laboratories and classrooms where they usually have no access. They may try various experiments or activities and find out what the UP scientists are engaged in and what results they are achieving.
