The Researchers' Night is a pan-European event involving a wide range of scientific and research organisations, including museums, laboratories and academic institutions. Hosting a variety of fun events running late into the night, the aim is to give the public, and in particular young people, the opportunity to meet researchers in a relaxed environment and to highlight the appeal of pursuing a research career. Visit our English programs during Researchers' Night at Eötvös Loránd University and the Membrane Research Group in Budapest, at Terkán Lajos Public Observatory on Székesfehérvár or at the University of Debrecen.

Researchers’ Night with the Membrane Research Group
Location: 1113 Budapest, Diószegi u. 64.
We present colorful macromolecules and live human stem cells in the laboratory. You may follow normal and tumor cell differentiation by fluorescence technologies and meet the experts form Ph.D. student to professors. Watch the movies, listen to the live music and feel the atmosphere of science: enjoy curiosity and imagination.
The unlimited capability of stem cells - dreaming of coloured hearts
Tissue stem cell based regenerative medicine
Enhancement of bone regeneration with mesenchymal stem cells seeded on scaffolds
Seeing is believing?
Cells in single file (Flow Cytometry)
The wonderful world of DNA
Stem cells astray – Cancer stem cells
A closer look on cancer cells – Drug resistance

A guided tour of Dante’s Inferno
We would like to invite Researcher’s Night’s bravest and most audacious visitors on a hellish tour of Dante’s Inferno at the Italian Department library. In the Inferno’s dark daedals you will experience firerain, blood, affliction, Paolo and Francesca. During the evening a short guided tour of the Inferno will be offered in English. Visitors will also have the opportunity to conduct their own research on Dante’s Divine Commedy, using different editions of the poem and varieties of dictionaries. During the program our fearless guests can fill out a quiz to compete for Italian themed prizes.
Tour leader: Vergilius is not available at the requested time. Anett Julianna Kádár will lead the tour in His absence.
We look forward to dabbling with you in the devilish feeling of Dante’s Inferno.
Scientific historical tour
Terkán Lajos Public Observatory / Terkán Lajos Bemutató Csillagvizsgáló (Székesfehérvár)
1, Picture-book of the sky:
In the case of a clear sky at the deck of the observatory we show and tell the mythological stories of the all naked eye visible constellations. We will point their interesting objects with the help of a laser pointer.
2, Using our 30 cm Newtonian telescope we will show the Sun and the sunspots, later on the setting Mars and Saturn, the full Moon then the rising Jupiter.
The latest results in exoplanet research:
In today’s astronomy the search for exoplanets - in which Hungarians have great results as well - is one of the most popular subjects among astronomers. We already know about a few hundred exoplanets, and in the near future it is expected that with the help of technology we will be able to find Earth-like planets. The lecture presents the past, the present and the future of exoplanet research, and it will discuss Hungarian results as well.
Physics in astronomy, spectacular demonstrations:
The lecture will show through experiments the causes of atmospheric optical events, like why we see the clouds in white, why the stars are not really there where we see them, why this effects the length of the day and night, and why the length of the day is longer by one month on the poles. We will get an answer for why the stars are spherical and what can we learn from the spectrum of stars. We will show the basis of how a rocket works, and show experiments related to whirpools. A few more interesting astronomical topics will be discussed, like the rotation of Mercury, the whirls in Jupiter’s atmosphere and the magnetic features of stars.
We measure the Universe:
The Universe we can observe is about 13 billion light years in diameter.
The public sector in space:
In the last years in some countries the space programs find it difficult to perform their „routine duties” because of financial restrictions from governments. So the plans and developments of the public sector comes in front ever more. In this lecture we will show why the companies have not been engaged with space so far, why they began now, what plans they have, what are their results so far and what the future can bring in this area.
Astrobiology, life outside Earth:
The mankind was always interested what can be found outside the world it knows. It was driven by curiosity. That’s why it turned its interest to the sky, and why it began to search for its own origin and the origin of life, and to determine the laws which control them.
A collection of the most beautiful pictures from Hubble:
The astonishing pictures of the Hubble Space Telescope are well-known, and these pictures have much helped the progress of science. With the help of some pictures from the objects of our Solar System to the furthest galaxies we will learn about the knowledge related to these objects.

Szeptember negyedik péntek éjszakája idén is a szenvedélyesen kíváncsiaké! Végre újra kinyílnak a laborajtók, a kutatók ismét kibújnak fehér köpenyükből, és hétköznapi nyelven mutatják be a tudományt. Szeptember 28-án, Kutatók Éjszakáján kicsik és nagyok személyesen találkozhatnak a kutatókkal, kipróbálhatják eszközeiket, találmányaikat, megismerhetik a munkájukat előadások, vetélkedők, kiállítások és tudományos-szórakoztató programok keretében.
