All-Russia Science Festival 2012

On October 12, 13 and 14, Moscow hosts the 7th Science Festival. Many interesting events will be organized in different places of the city - at universities, museums, schools and others. The Festival of Science is intended for the widest audience. Its purpose is to tell society in clear and understandable language what scientists do, how taxpayers’ money is spent on the development of scientific research, how science improves the quality of the life, and what prospects it opens for the modern person.


The Festival is an unusual kind of public report about science that looks like a celebration. It celebrates the achievements of science while contributing to public education. The Science Festival presents both global and national successes of science and allows visitors to learn first-hand what is happening at the forefront of research.

The successful format of the Festival allows visitors to hear lectures and vibrant discussions by prominent scientists and to take part in exciting competitions and interactive exhibits. The Festival has contributed to a breakthrough in the popularization of science in Russia. Never before has science been so interesting and attractive to so many people with nonscientific backgrounds.

Today participants in the Festival of Science include not only the country's leading universities, research institutions, observatories, and science museums but also business incubators and art centers. The number of participants in the Science Festival in Russia increases annually, and the popularity of the Festival has reached the level of its foreign counterparts.

Today the Science Festival is an international celebration of scientific knowledge. That is why foreign institutions take part in it, an extremely important step for the development of the Festival in Russia. Catch the spirit! At the Festival you will find a lot of new and incredibly interesting information!

The Festival of Science makes it possible to meet with outstanding scientists who can clearly describe their work to a wide audience. People queue up at the microphone wishing to ask questions, and then they continue to ask the lecturer questions for a long time in the foyer. Indeed, for many people the Festival provides an exclusive opportunity to talk with academics such as Vladimir Skulachev, Andrei Zaliznyak, Valery Rubakov, Alexei Khokhlov, Victor Matveev, Robert Nigmatulin, Anatoly Cherepashchuk, Natalia Basova, and famous astronaut and director of the Mars-500 program Boris Morukov. These are only a few of the great scientists to whom visitors to previous Festivals could listen.
