The event was co-financed by the "Social Responsibility of Science" program of the Minister of Education and Science.

Lublin Science Festival is the largest cyclical event popularizing science in the Lublin region and is among the top three largest science festivals in Poland. So far, sixteen editions of the Lublin Science Festival have been held in Lublin, in which in total, almost 13,650 projects were submitted and presented, with the vast majority being repeated many times - record-breaking even 16 times.

Last year, due to the difficult socio-economic situation of the country caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, instead of the planned 17th edition of the LFN, Lublin Virtual Science Days were organized, which took place online at the Lublin University of Inspiration on 22nd-24th September 2020. During the Lublin Virtual Science Days, the systems recorded 15,000 unique users on the Lublin University of Inspiration website. Thanks to effective promotional activities and cooperation with EUSEA, the projects were seen by several hundred users from over 10 European countries, incl. Belgium, Belarus, Croatia, Ukraine, Russia and Great Britain. The online event was also attended by participants from another continent, namely the United States. By organizing Lublin Virtual Science Days, public universities and the City of Lublin have proved that together they can meet the difficult challenges posed by the modern world, and thanks to excellent cooperation and commitment of the organizers, implementation of the mission of Lubelski Science Festival took on a new, previously unknown dimension.

Lublin Science Festival has permanently entered the calendar of scientific and cultural events in Lublin, which combine the promotion of science with the social and economic development of the region, showing the relationship between science and everyday life and development opportunities for the region's economy with appropriate use of the innovative potential of individual fields of science and technology by entities economic.

Portal opening linking Lublin and Vilnius inhabitants

The City of Lublin, in cooperation with the City of Vilnius, the Lithuanian Benediktas Gylys Foundation and the Centre of Intercultural Creative Initiatives “Crossroads” opens in new tab carry out an international project called Portal.

The concrete construction is located at Litewski Square in Lublin. The Lublin-Vilnius portal was officially opened on May 26, 2021.

The main component of the initiative is a concrete object resembling a virtual door and will be present in the public space until August. Using cameras and a large round screen, the installation will transmit the image between Lublin and Vilnius through an internet connection.

Portal is a ticket to travel in time, to the city of the future. Due to the new technologies usage, we will create a visual bridge and enable residents to experience a unique feeling, called the “overview effect”. An experience known so far only to astronauts who experience watching the Earth from outer space causes a radical change in self-awareness and gives a sense of community.

The project, which integrates and awakens the awareness of unity, will allow mutual observation, and establish contact in real-time. It will bring cities together, encourage to meet new people and cultures, and will be a place for dialogue bringing us closer. The main idea of the project is to create a communication platform for passers-by, but also institutions and organisations. PORTAL creates the opportunity to show Lublin’s projects in the Lithuanian capital, and interactive activities on both sides.

You are more than welcome to take a look!
