Curiosity Carnival, a showcase of the research happening here at Oxford in celebration of European Researchers' Night, kicked off on 29 March with a programme of activities and communications in the lead up to the main event on Friday 29 September.

The event will involve hundreds of researchers from all divisions of the University, along with researchers from Oxford Brookes and MRC Harwell, engaging with the public at events across the University’s museums, gardens and libraries, as well as Wytham Woods and the streets around the city. 

Following a call-out for activities at the end of last year we’re already working with lots of research groups from across MSD to showcase the range of medical research happening here at Oxford, but there are still opportunities to volunteer. If you’re interested, send an email to
