ScienceNight Ruhr ( is one of the youngest and largest Science Festivals in Germany. Every two years this polycentric Researchers’ Night turns the dynamic Ruhr Region into a swirling “Knowledge Metropolis”. More than 400 scientists from vious scientific institutions present a dialogue-oriented, interactive programme in more than 6 different cities. The main target groups of ScienceNight Ruhr are families, as well as students and young professionals and of course everybody interested in research and science.

The Ruhr Metropolis in North Rhine-Westphalia is the largest urban agglomeration in Germany. In this post-industrialized region with about 5.2 million inhabitants, ScienceNight Ruhr invites thousands of visitors of all ages to enjoy, experience and debate science. As a biannual format ScienceNight Ruhr is a landmark of the region’s strategic development from a post-industrial region, still shaped by a strong tradition of coal mining and steel production, into a dynamic “Knowledge Metropolis”. ScienceNight Ruhr is seen as an essential element in this development process – emphasizing the role of science and innovation as a motor for sustainable economic and socio-cultural development.

The festival will be organized in the whole Ruhr Metropolis. ScienceNight Ruhr is organized by the Ruhr Regional Association in close collaboration with a large number of Universities and Scientific Institutions.
