SciFest 2022 - Welcome to participate

SciFest is and has always been a science festival with a wide range of workshops, shows, competitions, researcher meet and greets, and lectures. Since 2020, the festival is co-organised by Uppsala University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. 

Here, curious people of all ages get a taste of the research being conducted, with laboratory work, current research questions and hands-on activities. SciFest wants to give children and school pupils the opportunity to discover just how much fun science is, and hopefully be able to sow a seed that leads young people to become interested in studying it more and maybe even become researchers.

Over all the years that the festival has been organised, SciFest has gathered almost 8,000 curious visitors over the three festival days. SciFest exhibitors come from schools, universities, companies, authorities, museums and organisations. The first days of the festival are dedicated to school pupils and teachers. On the final day, SciFest opens its doors to the public.

Are you interested in taking part?

Follow the steps below and if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with us.

About SciFest 2022

Date: 10-12 March 2022
Venue: Fyrishov

If many exhibitors register activities for this year’s SciFest, it may be necessary to limit the number of activities and stands. In that case we will explore the possibility of creating a joint stand with one or more other researchers, perhaps from different fields. The SciFest team is open to all ways of creating an exciting science festival together with you.

Workshop or non-stop activity
As an exhibitor at SciFest, you can participate with two different types of activities. If you arrange an unbookable non-stop activity, you provide an activity that the visitor is open to interacting with at any time during the day. At a bookable workshop, you offer workshop time slots at special times that is open for school students to book to get a deeper insight into your area of research. Between the workshop sessions, as well as on Saturday, your activity acts as a non-stop activity.
