Attendance record at the Long Night of Research


The recipe for success of the Long Night of Research worked again this year. Children's bright eyes, astonished faces and nods in awe describe the mood of the evening on the 4th of April. Nearly 3,000 visitors including 1,100 in the Lifecycle Tower (LCT One) from across the country, the neighbouring town of Lindau and St. Gallen discovered the 46 research stations in Dornbirn. This year the selection was especially great - with the LifeCycle Tower and the company One to One prototypes, two brand new sites were included and this time the technology fans had a lot offered.


The hotspot LifeCycle Tower was all about innovative building construction, energy efficiency and sustainability. Families, schools, youth and technology fans used the opportunity to talk directly with experts and academics and they could get impressed by the variety of topics.


With the Long Night of Research two main objectives are pursued: First, to inspire children and young people for engineering, science and research and to show how exciting the work of a scientist is. And secondly, to provide a platform for researchers on which to present their valuable and important work and to show what great projects are being implemented in the country", said Councillor Harald Sonderegger, who officially opened the event in the LCT One. The next Long Night of Research is planned for Spring 2016.
