Abstract: Malta organises one of the largest celebrations of researchers around Europe. As part of the EU-wide European Researchers Night (ERN; Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions of the Horizon 2020 Program (H2020, 2014–2020)), Science in the City is Malta’s platform to engage citizens with the latest research and scientific projects happening around the Maltese Islands. From 2018–2019, 55 ERN projects ran in 371 cities across Europe, Turkey, Israel and other countries. During the 2018 ERN, over 1.5 million visitors attended. The Maltese ERN ranked 7th from 128 applications and began in 2012, attracting just over 10,000 visitors. It has now grown into a science and arts festival that attracts 30,000 people, around 6% of the Maltese Islands’ population.
