Edinburgh International Science Festival, founded in 1989, is an educational charity that aims to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to discover the world around them. We are best known for organising Edinburgh’s annual Science Festival: the world’s first celebration of science and technology and still one of Europe’s largest.

The two-week festival gives audiences amazing experiences through a diverse programme of innovative events. Alongside the annual festival in Edinburgh, the organisation has a strong focus on education and runs a touring programme that visits schools around Scotland throughout the year.

Edinburgh International Science Festival also operates a large-scale international programme of work. It regularly presents events overseas and is currently the Major Programming Partner of the annual Abu Dhabi Science Festival, helping to curate, produce and deliver the event. For international partners, the team at Edinburgh International Science Festival provides engaging content, curatorial advice on programming and business planning support, along with expert staff and training for local science communicators.
