The annual event Science in the City—European Researchers’ Night has been recognised by the Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe (EFFE) as one of Europe’s finest festivals and awarded the EFFE label 2015–2016, along with 12 other local festivals (www.effe.eu/node/64).

EFFE is a new international platform connecting festivals that are deeply committed to the arts, the community and European values. Audiences worldwide can access up-to-date festival information and participate in any of these European events. EFFE recognises the excellence of these festivals in their work across Europe.

Following an open call for the EFFE Label 2015-2016, hundreds of festivals submitted applications evaluated on the following criteria: artistic commitment, community involvement, and a festival’s international and global outlook. National experts, appointed by EFFE’s national contact points, scored the applications and presented the findings to an international jury which nominated the EFFE Label 2015-2016 recipients.

This year Science in the City will be held on 25 September from 6pm till midnight. The festival events run from City Entrance to St George’s Square filling the street, squares and buildings with science and art.

The fascination for science will be manifested through interactive experiments, debates, and a number of art forms. One of the star attractions this year will be a Comet landing simulating the Rosetta mission and Philae probe.

The Science in the City festival—European Researchers’ Night is supported by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action of the European Union Horizon 2020 (H2020) Programme. The event is led by the University of Malta Research Trust (RIDT) and Malta Chamber of Scientists in partnership with Karl Borg Events, Studio 7, MEUSAC, Valletta Local Council, Malta Council for Science and Technology, Malta College for Arts, Science and Technology, PBS, Notte Bianca, St James Cavalier, and General Soft Drinks with Coca Cola.
