ADIFF: the first European Researchers’ Night in Wales
ADIFF is the first ever European Researchers’ Night in Wales, celebrating the contribution of Welsh researchers to society, community and culture.
Wales is known for its spectacular wild landscapes, ancient castles and poetic language. The capital city, Cardiff, is one of the fastest growing cities in the UK and attracts 20 million visitors a year. Many people from the surrounding capital region travel to Cardiff for work, shopping and cultural events. It is the most populated part of Wales and over half of 16-25 year-olds live here.
However, many people are unaware of the amazing breakthroughs made by the diverse community of scientists and engineers that live here. Cardiff University is a research intensive institution and ranked 2nd in the UK for the impact of its work. Taking advantage of the University’s strong relationship with science communication specialists, Science Made Simple, ADIFF will create an entertaining and illuminating family festival that highlights how researchers are ‘Making a DIFFerence’ in the capital and beyond to the
whole of the country.
