The first edition of the Festival took place at one single location, which was sufficient for our enthusiasm for popularization of science to cause a sensation among a variety of target groups. The Festival recorded 8000 visitors in just two days. Year after year, the Festival has changed in terms of the programs, followed by the raise of the number of venues, demonstrators, lecturers, program segmentation for all ages and science disciplines, as well as, in its ultimate reach – the introduction of scientific discourse in everyday life and provoking general public interest in scientific activities.
Today, nine years since its launch, Serbian Science Festival is far beyond its humble beginnings: at this moment, it is one of the top science festivals in SE Europe, while at local level SSF represents the most popular and most important annual scientific event. Last year’s Science Festival recorded 32,000 visitors in four days and it hosted 58 scientific and educational institutions with over 550 scientific demonstrators.
