Robotics, developing apps and experimenting in the lab – at the Vienna Research Festival children and adolescents have the opportunity to immerse into the exciting world of research and to test new technologies live.
The Vienna Business Agency is committed to a wide range of activities related to technology awareness. The aim is to inform the broad public of Vienna, together with Viennese companies, universities and research facilities, about new technologies and research activities and to inspire children about science and research. In an immediate illustrative way approachable research, which is fun, is presented.
Since 2008, the Vienna Business Agency has organized the Vienna Research Festival in two different formats: one year it is in the form of a large convention, in the other years an exibition on tour is organised.
