"SCIMFONICOM 2018-19 is a two years project organized by the Institute of Molecular Genetics and Genetic Engineering and Faculty of Physical Chemistry University of Belgrade.

""Begin with basic science"" (2018) and ""Aspire to applied science"" (2019) will be organised in 13 cities and 6 rural communities in Serbia, with the addition of three new cities in 2019. Several educational and cultural institutions (Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Belgrade City Library, Belgrade City Museum, French Institute, Institute Cervantes, Foundation of Ilija M. Kolarac, Regional Center for Talents, Biosense Institute, etc.) and NGO Regional Team for Science, Education and Art Support in Central Serbia have supported the project. NIGHT program will include a range of attractive activities, some of them are: Science Vans (mobile researchers’ teams in rural areas); Grand Science Adventure (interactive demos in different research fields); Treasure Hunt (win award by solving hands-on experiments); 50 shades of green (lectures and workshops regarding environment); Open Lab (tours around the research laboratory accompanied by researchers); ExerScience (demos educating about processes underlying exercise); Science can be social (workshops representing social sciences and conservation of cultural heritage); European Corners (interactive display of EU projects in Serbia and competition ""Guess the science""). SCIMFONICOM 2018-19 is expected to continue raising public awareness about researchers and to bring researchers closer to visitors by offering new activities and locations, while obtaining greater support of cultural/educational institutions, NGO and other organisations towards RN main ideas. Project will take part in RN network (Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, UK, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal), bringing the greater synergy at the regional and European level and emphasizing European character of Researchers’ Night activity."
