Tent in the main square in Uppsala, Researchers’ Night 2011.

A simple and uncomplicated way of making information materials available is to set up a tent with information inside, possibly alongside other organised activities. Passers-by can enter the tent and pick up information to take with them if they want to learn more. The choice of location will largely determine the number of visitors. It is of course a good idea to place the tent where a lot of people pass by.

The choice of location is important as well because this will largely determine the number of people who will see it.
