Why take part in the ‘Book a Scientist’ scheme?
The ‘Book a Scientist’ scheme gives everyone the opportunity to receive a visit from a scientist, free of charge, during the Danish Science Festival. Book a Scientist is a nationwide initiative, which creates a meeting place for scientists and the community. It gives the scientists the opportunity to enter into a dialogue with citizens all over Denmark and helps to strengthen the reputation of science in Denmark.
