European researchers’ night 2017 - The image of the researcher
The last Friday of September has been designated European Researchers’ Night by the European Commission (ForskarFredag).

The events are aimed at showing that researchers are ordinary people with extraordinary jobs and that research is all about communication and international cooperation.

ForskarFredag is a fantastic idea. We (scientists) come closer to the local community and I hope there will be more of this to come.

Before, I had no idea what it was like to go to university. Now, I could certainly imagine myself going there.
