The Danish Science Festival, which is an annual event, is a week-long festival that is comprised by approximately 700 different events that attract around 75,000 visitors at more than 100 locations across Denmark. 

The purpose of the Danish Science Festival is to:

  • Celebrate the fundamental element of research: curiosity
  • Establish a meeting point between researchers and the general public
  • Showcase how research and innovation contribute to solving social challenges and issue
  • Support public engagement in research and enhance the relationship between researchers and the general public.

A part of the festival is the "Book a Researcher" program, in which it is possible to have a researcher come to your institution to give a talk for free. Every year approximately 300 researchers sign up to the program. During the festival in April 2018, a one such researcher was Magnus Kjaergaard who participated in the program and ended up he visiting several Danish high schools, public libraries and other institutions to give his talk "Hukommelsens molekyler" (The Molecules of Memory). He also appeared on P4 Midt/Vest radio where he was announced as the most booked researcher within the program. The talks and radio interviews took place between the 20th to the 24th of April 2018.
