The 2008 edition of the Researchers’ Night is an expanded and updated version of the 2007 event. Tempus Public Foundation together with 13 prestigious institutions of the Hungarian higher education and research community - University of Technology and Economics; Corvinus University of Budapest; Eszterházy Károly University; Eötvös Loránd University; Pázmány Péter Catholic University; Szent István University; Széchenyi István University; University of Debrecen; University of Miskolc; University of Pécs; University of Szeged; University of West Hungary, and the Agricultural Research Institute of the HAS - undertake the organisation of the event in 2008. The consortium consists of last year’s RN partners strengthened by two other universities. Our event fits well in the Europe-wide festival series with the entertaining and serious, but “user-friendly” scientific programmes focusing on science and researchers, and on researchers and society. We wish to involve the public in a wide range of various activities including hands-on experiments, laboratory and cave visits, creative contests, University CSI, music and theatre performances, exhibition of research results, investigating order and disorder in nature, an obstacle race in a Botanical Garden, a library night, games on wildlife, programmes linked to Renaissance Year, The Year of the Bible, and to the International Year of Languages initiatives and innumerable other exciting programmes. Visitors will meet and play with many researchers and get more acquainted with the world of science. The events will take place in 15 towns; most of Hungary will be covered ensuring that the RN will reach a large audience. The professional background and organizational experience of the participants ensure that the activities will be efficiently co-ordinated and both the serious and the entertaining programmes will display a high standard of quality.
