“Die Lange Nacht der Forschung” (The Long Night of Research) is a biannual event, that takes throughout Austria, offering free access to experience science and research first-hand in all nine federal provinces. You can engage in discussions with researchers, uncover hidden and intriguing aspects of science, and be amazed by what is revealed. It is pitched at the general public and aims to get people more interested in science, inform them about interesting projects happening in their city and also educate them on subjects. It is aimed at all ages with some events specially for children.
The last edition took place on 20th May 2022, showcasing researchers’ achievements across a diverse range of fields, including society, environment and health, natural sciences, technology and energy, and business, digitalization, and culture. The event offered a dynamic program at over 2,700 locations with tours, workshops, talks, demonstrations, and interactive experiments to observe, participate in, and be amazed by.
Within the ZWT offering, BRAVE Analytics organised a very interesting 30min tour through their laser lab and explained their OF2i technology to around 90 people, including some children from age 7, that was very welcome by non-scientists.
