On 20 May 2022, after a long break, it was once again time to stay awake and be curious! Around 500 Salzburg researchers from local research institutions and companies answered all questions for one night and offered plenty of aha experiences for children and adults. A total of 116 research stations at ten different locations in the city and province of Salzburg offered insights into fascinating areas of science. More than 5,500 guests visited the Long Night of Research in Salzburg.
The Long Night of Research takes place every two years and celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2022. After the event was held as a purely digital event in 2020, an extensive on-site programme took place again this year. The programme included guided tours, lectures, hands-on stations and many interactive programme items, also for children.
The Long Night of Research makes domestic research and innovation visible and shows the contribution that research and science make to all of us. Once again, doors were opened that would otherwise remain closed to the public. 5,500 visitors were able to look behind the scenes of Salzburg's internationally renowned research.
Researchers from the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences invited visitors to experience research up close at a total of 18 stations on the Urstein campus. The topics ranged from the healing effects of wood, to modern, sustainable tourism, to exciting questions from information and media technology, healthcare, smart building, circular economy and society.
