The Year of Research-Based Knowledge is for everyone.
Our aim is that the Year of Research-Based Knowledge will provide opportunities to understand the transformations in our society and what is needed to solve them.
During the year, knowledge will be made more accessible and its relevance more visible in everyday life. A particular aim is to provide children and young people with creativity, inspiration and hope for the future.
