Dear colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the largest science popularization event at our Institute which will be an occasion to present to the broader public the work of our researchers, especially since the year 2019 is the year of our 55th jubilee.

The Institute for Social Research in Zagreb (ISRZ) opens its door on Thursday, 23rd May 2019 from 10.00 AM till 1.00 PM to all the visitors of ISRZ Open Day with the aim to popularize social sciences, humanities, educational sciences and related disciplines.

This year Open Day is organized and financed within the H2020-MSCA-NIGHT-2018 EU project “European Researchers´ Night: Techno-Past Techno-Future” within the EU programme Horizon 2020 at which ISRZ is one of 18 partners led by the Ministry of Science and Education.
