On Friday, 28 September 2018 CERN organises Researchers’ Night for the 9th consecutive year! The brand new Esplanade des Particules, the Globe of Science and Innovation and Building 33 will open their doors to the public for this great European celebration of science. A myriad of free and bilingual activities will be available from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Robotic and cloud chambers workshops, SC tours, virtual reality headsets, physics shows and demonstrations from CERN experiences, everything is planned to put on quite a show! At the Globe, enjoy a selection of the latest science movies, among which the latest film on CERN, “Almost Nothing: CERN Experimental City”, an award winner at the last Nyon Visions du Réel film festival. Director Anna de Manincor will be present to share her experience and answer all questions.

To run this major event, CERN need help to welcome, inform, guide and spoil its visitors! Do you want to represent CERN at this event? Become a volunteer by filling this form: https://indico.cern.ch/event/751881/!

You do not need to be a scientist. The ideal profile is someone from CERN with a good dose of enthusiasm and good mood.

Important information:

  • Schedules: there are two shifts organised, one from 4:30 p.m. to 8:15 p.m., the other from 7:45 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
  • Conditions: regardless of your status, each shift will be rewarded at the same price as 1 hour of guiding.
  • Languages: fluency in French is recommended in view of the local community expected at the event. English or any other language is definitely a plus.
  • Briefing sessions: you must attend one of the volunteer briefing sessions before Researchers’ Night (Fri 21.09 10:00-11:00 a.m. or Tue 25.09 from 4:00-5:00 p.m.)

Join Researchers’ Night team and make this night unforgettable!
