Not coming to ESOF? Get behind the scenes of science instead!


To coincide with the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF), held in Manchester this month, The University of Manchester is throwing open its doors to give people a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes in labs where the next big discoveries are being made by our researchers.

Over two days (26 and 27 July) visitors will be able to see behind the scenes of the National Graphene Institute where two of our Nobel Prize winners work on the latest uses of this wonder material, take part in experiments including whole body scanning and flying robots, and see the reptiles and amphibians held in the Manchester Museum’s vivarium up close.

The OpenLabs programme includes more than 30 events accessible to a range of ages and levels of scientific knowledge and most are full of hands-on fun.

Plan your visit at the Open Labs website and keep up with all the action using #OpenLabsMcr as Manchester celebrates being this year’s European City of Science.
