About

Great North Museum: Hancock presents Planet 2.0 for European Researchers' Night


Across the continent, Friday 28 September is European Researchers' Night so we thought we'd open the museum late and fill it with some of the North East's sharpest minds: scientists, thinkers, doers and fun-lovers.

Researchers are the innovators and the risk-takers, pushing the boundaries of what we know and what's possible. Grab a drink at the bar and chat with one about the burning issues of the day. Explore the museum. Meet a curator. Do something different with your Friday night.

This year's theme is 'Planet 2.0'

Does the planet need a reboot? Human activity has fundamentally changed Earth and scientists are researching our impact to give us the opportunity to move towards a 'Planet 2.0' where both people and planet thrive. 


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 819158.
