Open call: submit a research proposal for Lowlands Science
Talk to a robot, cause a chain reaction, experience the effect of brain damage with a VR headset... These are just some of the different research projects that have been carried out in recent years at Lowlands Science, the interactive research programme at Lowlands Festival.
Want to join in this year and put your research in the spotlight? Lowlands is calling on researchers from all universities and research institutions to submit a proposal.
During the festival enthusiastic visitors participate in experiments in which they learn something and you as a researcher gain data and attention for your research. You can use the designated Lowlands Science site and the (voluntary and anonymous) cooperation of 60,000 festivalgoers.

Lowlands 2023 will be on 18, 19 and 20 August. Submit your research proposal by 31 March 2023 at the latest. Please note: Each selected research project will need €5,000 of its own funding. Read all the information about the open call.
Leiden University at Lowlands
Festivalgoers at previous editions of Lowlands could already find out about projects by researchers from Leiden University. These included playing ‘broken telephone’ for science, DNA dating and 'Real life Tinder'.
