Before my parental leave, I was the national coordinator for ForskarFredag (Research Friday), Sweden’s most widely distributed science festival. Research Friday brings together meeting places between researchers and the public throughout Sweden on the last Friday and Saturday in September. Visitors meet researchers face to face and get a greater understanding of what research is, how researchers work and how research affects our everyday lives.
As part of ForskarFredag, we organise a science communication competition called the Researchers’ Grand Prix, with regional heats held around the country, which I coordinated nationally.
An exciting part of ForskarFredag is our annual mass experiment, a citizen science project for schools.
For any questions regarding ForskarFredag, please get in touch with the new project manager Julia Brink.
