This toolbox aims to provide inspiration and ideas for a variety of activities to communicate research.
The starting point of toolbox is activities organised during the annual Researchers’ Night event (ForskarFredag) since 2005. (More details can be found at ForskarFredag.se).
Researchers’ Night has been coordinated nationally by VA (Public & Science) since 2006 as part of the European wide initiative Researchers’ Night organised by the European Commission.
VA is a non-profit association that aims to promote dialogue and openness between the research community and the general public, particularly young people. One of its aims is to promote new forms of dialogue around research that engages people. VA’s philosophy is that dialogue should always start with people’s questions, interests and concerns rather than the information the researchers themselves want to communicate.
