​The long night of research



Introducing science in an entertaining manner


On Friday, 22.04.2016, research institutions and businesses all over Austria opened their doors again and gave exciting insights into the diverse world of research: Trotec Laser participated for the first time.


The long night of research registers increasing interest in all levels of population and age groups since 2005.  It is the only nationwide research event that gives access to local institutions from fundamental research to industry for the population at large.
The biggest event of science communication aims to introduce science and research in an innovative, understandable and entertaining way with free admission.



Experience Trotec laser technology at first hand



Altogether, 37,600 people were out and about in Upper Austria, and about 7,600 in the Greater Area Wels. More than 400 - of these mainly young - research enthusiastic people also visited the Trotec Centre during the evening to experience the science around laser technology at first hand.

In addition to stations in the production hall, among others for the correct adjustment of the mirrors and guidance of the laser beam, the young researchers were able to let off steam directly at the Trotec laser engraving machines. As souvenirs and small thank you for motivated cooperation, there were engraved pens and bookmarks.

Information display boards regarding the principle of laser technology and tours through the production area and the Trotec Green Building completed the programme.
