Wigner RCP joins every year to the international Researcher's Night programs. Every September we have a weekend on which those who are interested in physics can meet our researcher groups.  These days it's also possible to visit the Wigner Datacenter and some laboratories. A part of the event takes place at the sports field of the Wigner RCP where some of the experiments are exhibited as well. We have a public video conference with the CERN each year in which anybody can take part and the audience can see how the researchers work at the CERN in Geneva.

The actual program is always published on this page.
