Every year since 1997, the Gothenburg International Science Festival Vetenskapsfestivalen creates meeting places for knowledge, inspiration and new perspectives. We love presenting science in creative and unexpected ways. On average, approx. 60,000 visits are made to the festival, which makes us one of Europe’s leading popular science events.

The logo for the Science Festival: a fingerprint and the words "Vetenskapsfestivalen".

With hundreds of activities, an average of 60,000 visits a year and more than 1000 hours of science, the International Science Festival Vetenskapsfestivalen plays an important role in reaching out and interest in research and scientific subjects. The science festival functions as a platform for a large number of partners.
