Bewise and its partners organise two days of “European Researchers’ Night” granted by the European Commission under the motto

“We aim for a society where science contribution to our planet’s well-being is valued by citizens and where researchers of all genders and backgrounds inspire the young to embrace scientific careers.”

WiseNight is a fun and inclusive event that aims to bring science and scientists in contact with the public interactively. We aim to show that science is about passion, teamwork and for anyone with an insatiable curiosity to discover and change the world.

Join us to marvel at the universe, explore the depths of water and oceans research, unearth the wonders of our lands and forests, and discover what being a scientist is all about.

We offer a variety of free activities, including workshops for children and youth, movie projections in the Planetarium dome, interactions with researchers, debates and a splendid photo exhibition displaying inspiring scientists of today.

WiseNight is an initiative of 7 organisations involved in research, science outreach and gender equality in scientific careers in Belgium:

  • BeWiSe
  • BOS+
  • Ekoli
  • GoodPlanet
  • Jeunesses Scientifiques de Belgique
  • the Planetarium of the Royal Observatory of Belgium
  • the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences.

This European Researchers’ Night WiseNight project is funded by the European Commission under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101036009.

We are thankful to BeWiSe volunteers who support the project, including VIB-International Plant Biotechnology Outreach (IPBO) for providing a science outreach training.
