The Science in the City (SitC) Festival turns TEN! For 10 years, it has been building bridges between researchers, artists and the community to set up a magical weekend in Valletta and now in a Hybrid format. This festival is part of European Researchers’ Night that takes place on the same nights in over 300 cities throughout Europe.

For the past two years the Science in the City team has seen the need to engage, empower and enable citizens with science and the arts, to equip them with creativity, innovation and critical thinking. In this way, we hope to introduce an element of critique, a spark of freedom and the promise of progress into the world of human action.

Our goal is to ensure that the idea that citizens can use research-based knowledge to help them identify the distinctive political, social, environmental and technical challenges and opportunities that confront us, will take root. This year’s festival will continue to work towards this goal, in the hope that the community will be better equipped to influence the policies and decisions that affect them at every level: Science in the City 2022 – Taking Root!
