Celebrating scientific research!

We invite you to a get-together with scientists in an environment where there are no borders.

For its fourth edition, Researchers’ Night is rolling out the red carpet in front of the iconic Biosphère, transforming the venue into a truly international summit.

This November 10, from 7 p.m. to midnight, Espace pour la vie invites you to become a conference delegate for an evening and take this opportunity to meet face-to-face with hundreds of researchers from fields as diverse as biology, health, participatory science, social science and astronomy. Together under the geodesic dome for this event, the scientists and general public will have a chance to share their thoughts and ideas while taking concrete action to usher in a better future.

Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store for you:

  • Demonstrations, one-on-one meetings, duel of ideas, panels, mini-lectures and other surprises
  • A DJ and a festive, offbeat atmosphere
  • On-site drinks ($)

This year, it will all be taking place simultaneously at the Biosphère and the Musée de la Nature et des Sciences de Sherbrooke. The full program will be unveiled this fall, with tickets going on sale in October.

The history of Researchers' Night

Inspired by the European Researchers’ Night, an event taking place in more than 300 European cities (including 16 in France) that has been held for more than 15 years, Espace pour la vie organizes a North American edition of the event since 2019.

Researchers’ Night is an initiative of Espace pour la vie and a multi-museum collaboration involving the Biodôme, the Biosphère, the Insectarium, the Jardin botanique, the Planétarium, Exploramer, the Musée de la santé Armand-Frappier, the Musée de la Nature et des Sciences de Sherbrooke and the Musée de l'ingéniosité J. Armand-Bombardier.
