Faroese Researchers Night 2018 (Vísindavøka) will be held at Sjóvinnuhúsið, Tórshavn on September 28, reports Gransking.fo.

The event is part of the European Researchers Night, which takes place yearly, typically starting on the last Friday of the month of September.

The European Researchers’ Night aims to bring researchers closer to the general public and to increase awareness of research and innovation activities, with a view to supporting the public recognition of researchers, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers’ work on citizen’s daily life, and encouraging young people to embark on research careers.

The Faroese Research Council (Granskingarráðið) and research institutes from across the country organize the Researchers Night, which has been held annually in the Faroe Islands since 2008.

Expected Impact:

– Increased awareness among the general public of the importance of research and innovation and more favourable general attitude towards its public funding
–  Better understanding of the key benefits that research brings to society
– Reduction in the stereotypes about researchers and their profession
– Increase, in the long term, of people taking up research careers
– Better understanding of the European Union among the general public
