What is ARTiS?

Science and technology are integral parts of our daily life, but scientific research can be difficult to access for non-experts. However, the perception of aesthetics is universal. ARTiS takes advantage of that, and uses the power of art to communicate science and technology to a broad audience.

We organize an annual competition where scientists and students submit beautiful research images together with a description of the research behind them. Selected pictures are exhibited during Culture Night and other exhibitions, and shared through social media. Additionally, we organize STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities for children combining art and science.

Our ultimate vision is to make science accessible for everyone.
