From 10 to 14 November 2021 the eight edition of InScience International Science Film Festival takes place in Nijmegen. The five day program consists of the best science films of this year and talks by researchers who will be sharing stories of their scientific endeavors and latest findings and insights. The festival also aims to actively involve its audience in the creation of scientific knowledge by letting visitors participate in scientific research. Within this festival setting, InScience offers researchers a unique platform to collect data for their research projects.

All academic disciplines are welcome at InScience. In previous editions, for instance, scientists from Radboud University carried out the experiment Gaming Against Your Brain. By involving visitors in a game against their AI, they tested whether it could predict human action based on brain activity. The Hot Politics Lab (University of Amsterdam) confronted the public with their political gut feelings. Scientists of Utrecht University helped people with their fear of public speaking by making use of Virtual Reality.

In 2021, InScience is expecting to come back in a physical format, while still having some of the programs online. For the 2021 edition, therefore, we are looking for research projects that can be presented on site, as well as interactive research that can be carried out online. Creative online and offline forms are welcome!
