Edinburgh Sciences Festival

The Edinburgh International Science Festival is happening now (5th – 20th of April, 2014), but it is not too late to get tickets for final days! 

Edinburgh International Science Festival is an educational charity that encourages people of all ages and backgrounds to discover the wonder of the world around them. We are best known for organising Edinburgh’s annual Science Festival – the world’s first celebration of science and technology, and still one of Europe’s largest.

The two-week event places emphasis on giving audiences amazing experiences through a programme of innovative and inspiring events. Alongside the annual festival, the organisation has a strong focus on education and also runs a touring programme that visits schools throughout the year.

Outwith the activities in Scotland, Edinburgh International Science Festival also operates a large-scale international operation. It regularly presents work overseas and is currently the major programme partner of Abu Dhabi Science Festival helping to curate and present the festival in Abu Dhabi, annually. For international partners, the team at Edinburgh International Science Festival provides engaging content, curatorial advice on programming, business planning support along with expert staff and training for local science communicators.
