Once a year, Dresden's universities, non-university research institutions and science-related companies open their doors to the public. Throughout the city, a wide variety of formats invite visitors to experience science and technology, research and innovation, art and culture up close. From 17:00-00:00, a colourful programme of lectures, experiments, guided tours and participatory shows awaits all those interested. Students, families, senior citizens and, of course, the little researchers of tomorrow are invited, in short: all night owls who want to experience research interactively and expand their own knowledge.
